Library of Things

The Alamogordo Public Library is pleased to present our Library of Things. Borrow items you may need temporarily and return them when you are done. Infrequently used items borrowed from the library can save you money and space. No need to buy something you may use only once or twice and then need to find a place to store it in your home. Borrow these items from the library, instead. This collection is still growing and expanding. Check back frequently to see what new items may have been added. 

Items have a three week check out period. A library card in good standing is required to borrow any items from the library. Items not returned on time will accrue a $.10 per day fine. 

Stop by the children's librarian's desk to ask about and borrow these items.
