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.
Snow at the library on January 7, blooming apricot tree March 25, apricots nearly ripe July 9.
We're 30 years old in 2016.
"the oldest independent library in Rio Arriba Co."
A quiet morning at the library with our smallest patron on July 9, 2016. It's an adorable Least Chipmunk (Tamius minimus) feasting on the berries from a Firethorn bush (Pyracantha) near the front door of the library. For scale look in the photo (r) , beside the far right near bottom corner of window frame.
