1. SOUTHWEST COLLECTION

    The library has more than 11,178 books on the Southwest.  About a third of these are Locked Case books which may only be used in the library.  The books deal with the Southwest as represented by New Mexico, Arizona, Utah and Colorado, particularly the Four Corners Areas.  The materials were collected by the former librarian, Octavia Fellin over a period of 40 years, and the collecting of such materials has continued up to the present day.  All materials are cataloged in our current circulation system and can be accessed by author, title, and in most instances, by subject.

3. COMPACT DISC COLLECTION

    We have a relatively small collection of 1496 music compact discs and purposely tried for an eclectic collection ranging from Country Western to Swing to Jazz and to Classical.  We have also tried to get music that represents different areas of the world.  There is a charge of $0.50 for each title circulated, and they, also, circulate for two weeks.
