TRY THE NEW CATALOG
The El Rito Library has a dynamic catalog searchable on-line. Patrons can now browse our collections when away from the library. You'll see the covers of all our latest acquisitions of books and DVDs and can easily search for a particular title or author. Simply click on the Catalog button to the right.
If that's not enough, this catalog also provides access for patrons to two excellent sources of thousands of free e-books, kindles and audio books - from the Project Guttenberg and LibriVox. Download and enjoy these copyright-free books. And for the genealogy buffs among us, there's access to "geni" for help with organizing and working on your family tree.
Our old card catalog which we hung onto with great sentimental attachment (even after we'd already digitized the collection) is now slated to become an addition to the fun games, puzzles, building blocks, stuffed animals and other items for creative kids' play and learning in our Christine Trujillo Children's Room.
We hope to re-purpose the lovely, sturdy wooden cabinet of many drawers into a Curiosity Cabinet with the help of our young people. Inside we'll assemble items of local pressed plants, bird feathers, small nests, rocks, minerals, casts of fossils.
