The book club is a way to share thoughts and opinions of a variety of books with members of the community, recommend new titles, and enjoy the pleasure of reading.  For suggestions of BOOK CLUB titles stop by the library and let us know.

Free Magazines and Books Available


The library has magazines and books available for the community to take.  We are currently weeding materials to make room for new materials. Weeding of materials is an evaluation of library materials and resources to determine what items to remove that are no longer useful in a collection.  Evaluation includes condition of the book, age, frequency of use, multiple copies, and currency/accuracy. Donations of books, audio books, and DVDs are always welcomed.





Laguna Public Library Bookmobile


The library is interested in obtaining a bookmobile to provide materials and services to all villages of Laguna Pueblo.  We would like the input of the community on this idea.  Surveys will be distributed throughout the community in February and will be available at the library.  Please fill it out to help us determine if there is a need for it.  Your response is greatly appreciated!
