I really appreciate and like the Santa Fe Public Library. The system works really well and the staff I've met have been outstanding folks. The on-line catalog and system for finding, reserving and renewing materials, works quite well.
I rate the downtown library a 3 only because of parking. Between the lack of spaces, the fact that it is all paid parking in the area and then the typically broken parking meter, my experiences have been frustrating, but only downtown. LaFarge and Southside Branches have ample, free parking so its easy to avoid downtown and still have access to the entire collection.

The library is right next to the hotel we stayed at, Hotel Chimayo de Santa Fe. The area is very touristy, but I found lacking in things for children to do. Thankfully this was just a few steps away. It is a beautiful library with the children's area being upstairs. I was able to read a few books to my son. A great way to unwind after a long car trip.

I love all libraries, and go frequently. Main library is now being repainted outside (finally). The LaFarge branch is in near or a total remodel and smells. The Southside Library on Jaguar is new and beautiful, but a bit out of the way for most people.

This Santa Fe Public Library is not large, but the building is historic and beautiful and in a great location just north of the historic downtown Plaza. The library features a nice reading area with a good selection of magazines and periodicals to peruse. Staff is usually pretty helpful, and this is a great place to take a quick break from downtown.

If you have a Santa Fe Public Library card/membership - which is free with proof of Santa Fe residency - you can check out books and DVDs at no charge from this library or any of the other Santa Fe Public Library locations.
