The library is busy planning some exciting programming for 2017. Among these are Chautauqua performers, local artists and authors, and the Orphan Train. In addition to our 1st Friday events, we are also having several Sunday afternoon gatherings. Our patrons may now use Ruidoso Public Library's resources for e-books. Visit RPL to obtain a patron card and get a pin number. Check the blog for information.
