*Effective November 13, 2020, due to the most recent order from the governor, the library is closed. Unfortunately, this means we are unable to offer curbside services or virtual programming. Because staff will not be in the building, the book return is closed. We ask that you please hold onto your items until we are able to reopen. All due dates will be extended and no late fees will be accrued during this closure. Requests for reserves will be filled once we reopen. We apologize for any inconvenience.*
Welcome to the Artesia Public Library
The modern public library supports life long learning, advances knowledge creation, and strengthens its community. It provides the tools and resources to support creativity, research, and problem-solving while asking and answering questions that challenge patron assumptions. Both the physical and virtual library spaces encourage patrons to engage with information, process it, reflect on it, have conversations about it, and develop new ideas. The Artesia Public Library is such a library; bringing people, information, and ideas together to create opportunities.
