Welcome to the El Rito Library! Bienvenidos!
El Rito's public library is a non-profit 501 (c) 3. We serve to enlighten, empower and bring enjoyment to our community. Our individual donors, our much appreciated grants, and the hard work of our volunteers keep us operating.
Don't forget our "Donor" Button on this page. It works - but needs some exercise. lately. These are the "lean" months at the library, where every dollar we receive is so very welcome.

We'll be 30 years old in 2016.
"the oldest independent library in Rio Arriba Co."
Our spring fundraising effort begins in April - May for the library. Apple trees are blooming, ditches are flowing. Red-winged blackbirds and meadow larks have returned. New life begins, a fresh growing season is well underway. It seems appropriate to also be thinking of how we are going to sustain our library for the next months.
We need $10,000 to carry on with our planned programs and ordinary services into the summer. This would be possible if just 200 donors gave $50 each. Our coffers are pretty bare at the moment but thanks to generous friends we're on our way to the goal.
It's easy: just push the DONATE button on this page, write us a CHECK, bring CASH during hours when we're open, or swipe your CREDIT CARD at the library.
Help us reach this goal by our June 5th Open House when we'll be celebrating our 30th year as your community library.
As of May 1 we have received $1,910 in donations. Thanks for that!
