Want to read a book? Watch a movie? Listen to your favorite author?


VGPL has more than 35,000 items available for checkout including books, DVDs, audio books, digital e-Content, book and audio CD combinations for early readers, music CDs, telescopes and more.

While you need a library card to check out most materials, we also offer puzzles, games and magazines that you can take home without checking them out. These are great for visitors and temporary residents.

To get your library card, all you need is proof of a current address within our service area: SE Santa Fe County covering Galisteo, Lamy, Glorieta, the city of Santa Fe and areas around Hwy 285 plus Pecos and Rowe. Print and fill out one of the library card applications at right and bring it to the library, or just stop by and we'll take it from there.

Just in the area for a short time? Ask about our temporary card. This card has strict limits and requires a $20 refundable deposit, but does allow visitors use of VGPL's resources.

Don’t know exactly what you want? Browsing the online catalog just not cutting it? We will create a selection of items based on your interests. Here are the forms, which can be dropped off at the library or emailed to

Can't find what you're looking for? VGPL may be able to borrow your book from another library. Just fill out the form and bring it into the library.


1. We are unlikely to be able to borrow anything other than books from other libraries as they are increasingly reluctant to loan them out.

2. Owing to postage costs and shipping time, if the book is housed at Santa Fe Public, we are unable to ILL it.

3. There is a $3 postage fee to assist in covering return shipping. This must be paid before the book can be picked up.
