welcome to the

Online Library Catalog
The library catalog is accessible via any device with an internet connection.  Library card holders may also update personal information, bookmark titles, reserve titles, renew titles, and access some of the online research resources (mentioned below) after logging into their online library account.

Public Computers
Twelve workstations are available for public use, including two filtered computers in the children's area.  All of our patron computers are equipped with Windows 8 or Windows 10, Microsoft Office 2013, Internet access, USB ports, headphones, printer connection, and free online research resources.

A library card is not required to utilize the patron computers and/or Wi-Fi, however, patrons must read and sign an Internet Use Policy Agreement at the circulation desk.

Wi-Fi
The library is a Wi-Fi hotspot!  Patrons who wish to utilize this service, on their own wireless devices, may connect to the network after agreeing to the terms of use from their web browser.

Copying & Printing
Patrons may make copies on a public copier in the computer room and/or print from any of the patron computers.  Copies and print-outs are 15¢ per page for black and white and 20¢ per page for color.

Inter-library Loans (ILLs)
Although our library collection meets many patron needs, we cannot carry every book in print due to limited space and acquisitions budget.  However, patrons may request materials through inter-library loans.

Patrons in good standing with a valid Edgewood Community Library card can fill out an ILL Request Form at the circulation desk and pay, in advance, $1.00 per requested title to help defray postage costs.  The Librarian will then request the title/s from the NM State Library to be sent by mail to the Edgewood Community Library for pick up by the requesting patron.  Once the material/s has arrived, the patron will then be notified by a librarian.
  • Please allow 2-3 weeks for processing.
  • All ILLs must be returned to the Edgewood Community Library by the specified due date
  • If the requested title/s cannot be located, patrons will be refunded in full.
eBooks & eAudiobooks
Downloadable eBooks through Project Gutenberg and eAudiobooks through LibriVox are searchable through the online library catalog.  These nonprofit agencies take books whose copyrights have expired and convert them into digital or MP3 files using volunteer time and manpower.
