National Library Week

by Ann B. “To ask why we need libraries at all, when there is so much information available elsewhere, is about as sensible as asking if roadmaps are necessary now that there are so very many roads.” Jon Bing (1944-2014. Norwegian writer and law professor at the Norwegian Research Center for Computers and Law) AsContinue reading “National Library Week”

Movies and more movies!

by John P. Due to a generous donation of DVDs to the Southside library, we have been able to add some DVD titles we have not been able to carry before, because they have been unobtainable for us. All titles are available through our website at santafelibrary.org. These movies are the kinds of titles thatContinue reading “Movies and more movies!”

In Memoriam – 2020

Ann B. One of my favorite things about reading is feeling that connection with an author that inspires us to read all the books they’ve ever written. We wait, not-so-patiently, for the next title they publish. We feel excited when it finally is available at our library or bookstore. And then time passes and they’reContinue reading “In Memoriam – 2020”

National Tattoo Day – July 17th, 2020

by Ann B. It’s National Tattoo Day and to celebrate, we thought we’d share some of our library ink.  Most of us don’t automatically think of libraries or librarians when we hear the word “tattoo” but it’s not uncommon to find staff members with ink related to personal events, a literary favorite, or both!  WhetherContinue reading “National Tattoo Day – July 17th, 2020”

Memorable Memoirs

by Callie S. Memoirs are one of my favorite genres. I find it exhausting to keep up with a world of new rules and exceptions. In memoirs, I am not asked to bend time or suspend belief to hear an amazing tale of triumph and perseverance. In all of these memoirs, these events all happenedContinue reading “Memorable Memoirs”

National Caldecott Day – June 14

Books About Libraries

by Ann B. In honor of National Library Week 2020, April 19-25, we have compiled a short list of books, both fiction and nonfiction, related to libraries.  Some explore the historic Carnegie libraries while others are fun short stories about overdue library books.  (Aren’t you glad Santa Fe Public Library doesn’t have late fees!?!)
