Remember, with an active library card you can access our online resources on our website, http://www.elpasolibrary.org/. We have ebooks, audiobooks, music and much more.
Also, please follow us on Facebook at El Paso Public Library for current updates.
Even though Nolan Richardson (our mini satellite library) is closed until Richard Burges opens, we have not forgotten about our lovely Northeast patrons! The Bookmobile is making special stops here in front of Richard Burges until the building opens up again.
Special Bookmobile stops will be:
Every Thursday 10:30 AM – 12:00 PM
Every Friday 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM
If you can’t stop by, please don’t forget our ebooks (Overdrive/Libby, Axis 360) or our new streaming service (Hoopla)! All you need is your library card number and PIN. If you need to return your library items, you can drop them off in the Techmobile.
