Technology Tuesdays at the Southside Branch
Clueless about your new tablet? Need to fill out an online job application and don't know where to begin? Want to learn how to check out e-books from the library and need help getting started? The Southside Branch, 6599 Jaguar Drive, is here to help with all of these computer questions and more with Technology Tuesdays, a series of free monthly computer workshops starting this winter, and designed to help beginning computer users in need of a little basic technology support.
Workshops will be on the second Tuesday of each month through April at 10:00 a.m. in the Southside Library's Community Room. Next session is on Tuesday, March 11.
Each one hour workshop will begin with a 15-20 minute presentation on a specific computer or technology-related topic, followed by an open forum session to answer general computer questions and work through basic computer problems.
Participants are encouraged to bring their own laptop or tablet, and any computer questions they may have.
Other topics to be presented over the course of the monthly sessions include computer safety and security, tips for job seekers, and checking out digital materials from Santa Fe Public Library. For more information, or to register please contact the Southside Reference Desk at (505) 955-2820.
Postcard notifications for overdue items and holds are being discontinued as of May 1, 2014
If you receive postcard notifications of holds that have arrived at the library, or when you have an overdue item, please switch to e-mail or telephone notifications by May 1, 2014.
Main Library Media Temporarily Closed
The Main Library, 145 Washington Avenue, has temporarily closed the media room to begin the process of reorganizing the public spaces in the library to better serve our patrons.
To access media materials at Main, patrons may place holds on media, which will be available for pickup at the Circulation Desk within 24 to 48 hours after the hold is placed. Patrons may also access media items at the La Farge and Southside Branches.
The reorganizing will include creating a new media area for the media collection on the first floor. This will include the moving of audio books, CDs and DVDs.
To place a hold on any library item, patrons may call any of the libraries or visit the Library Catalog. The Main Library can be called at (505) 955-6781 or (505) 955-6785; Oliver La Farge Branch at (505) 955-4860 or Southside Branch at (505) 955-2820. Materials on hold may be sent to the library chosen by the patron for pick up.
