Los Lunas Public Library Will Be Temporarily Discontinuing Curbside Services to help Prevent Spread of COVID-19.

Los Lunas, NM - The Los Lunas Public Library will be temporarily discontinuing curbside services to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our community effective Saturday, November 14, 2020 at 5:00 pm. Our decision is based on the recent spike in positive COVID-19 cases and on Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham’s November 13, 2020 announcement to re-enact the most heightened level of statewide public health restrictions that requires all non-essential businesses and nonprofits to cease in-person activities.This service interruption will be in effect for two weeks and is dependent on the number of COVID-19 cases as well as the Governor’s future directives.Library staff will be working from home and will be available to answer questions and perform research. If you have any questions or research requests, please call and leave a message at (505) 839-3850 and we will get back to you as soon as possible.In addition, staff will be posting educational and recreational content on our Facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/loslunaslibraryTogether we can make a difference.

Los Lunas Public Library Purchases eBook Platforms with GO Bond Funds

Los Lunas, NM – The Los Lunas Public Library recently purchased two eBook platforms in an effort to provide access to reading materials for the youth and teens of the area.

 While patrons can download eBooks and eAudiobooks at New Mexico Library to Go: https://nm.overdrive.com/ the selection for youth and teens is very limited. To address this limitation, the Los Lunas Public Library purchased access to Tumble Book Library and Teen Book Cloud utilizing New Mexico General Obligation Bond funds. 

 Tumble Book Library is an online database of over 1,100 titles for grades K – 6, and includes unique animated, talking picture books, Graphic Novels, read-along chapter books, National Geographic videos, non-fiction books, playlists, as well as books in Spanish and French. The collection is available online around the clock. No downloads, no waiting! You can access just by clicking here: https://www.tumblebooklibrary.com/autologin.aspx?userid=U2kqaVbiRoqXeRLjW6y9dg%3d%3d
 

Teen Book Cloud is an online database of eBooks and educator resources perfect for middle school and high school students. The database offers a robust selection of Graphic Novels, Enhanced Novels, eBooks, classic literature, National Geographic videos, educator resources, and audiobooks. The collection is available online around the clock as well. You can access just by clicking here: https://www.teenbookcloud.com/autologin.aspx?u=loslunas&p=libra 

 General Obligation Bond funds are voted upon by New Mexico voters every two years to help support public, school, academic, and tribal libraries in the state in providing services to the public. The next GO Bond is on the November 3, 2020 ballot as GO Bond Issue B in the amount of $9,500,000. The GO Bond Issue will provide $3,000,000 each for Academic libraries, Public libraries, and Public School libraries as well as $500,000 for NM Tribal libraries. It is estimated that Valencia County academic, public, and school libraries stand to gain close to $240,000 dollars if the bond issue passes.

 The Los Lunas Public Library is proud it is utilizing these taxpayer approved funds to help provide services to youth and teens during this COVID-19 pandemic. 

 For more information on accessing any of these databases, please call (505)839-3850.
