VGPL Current Events

Wags and Words is back! Got a student who is beginning to read, or struggles with reading? Then this is the perfect program. Latigo the Reading Dog would LOVE to be read to, and he is the perfect no-judgement listener. Latigo is here on Tuesday afternoons, from 3:30 to 4 pm. Interested? Contact Tracey at libasst@vglibrary.org or call us (505) 466-7323.

Attention Amazon Shoppers! If you purchase items online via Amazon.com, know your Amazon purchases give back to VGPL through the Amazon Smile or Amazon Associates programs. Although both programs are slightly different, each time you purchase products from Amazon by selecting one of the links, amazon provides a small commission to the Library. 

Collection Amazon Wish List:

Owing to the financial exigencies of the pandemic, our ability to purchase items for the collection is reduced. We are working hard to bring you high demand new releases, but that leaves  items that we cannot purchase at this time. If you follow this link, you can find a list on Amazon where you can purchase them for the library. We appreciate you using this wish list, as it reduces the likelihood of multiple copies of items of which we only have need and space for one.

Library Electronic Resources:

Did you know our Library Catalogs include numerous Electronic Resources? Select our Library catalog menu above and choose from:

  • Encyclopedia Britannica - online encyclopedia for research at home or on-the-go 

  • Overdrive - New Mexico's Library To-Go option for digital books and audio recordings

  • El Portal - a database collection of newspapers, journal articles, magazines and reference materials

  • Project Gutenberg - free collection of over 30,000 eBooks

  • LibriVox - public domain literature recordings

  • Geni - genealogy database (GeniPro in library only)

  • Learning Express - use to review skills and prepare for tests

Summer Library Programs begin June 1:  See the Summer Library Program page for more information. To register for the Reading Contest (for all ages this year!) and then to log your reading over the summer, go to vistagrandepl.beanstack.org/
