Branigan Library

Basic Computer Classes in December

Basic computer classes will be held at Thomas Branigan Memorial Library weekly beginning Monday, December 1. Each class will consist of a two hour hands-on instruction on the basics of how to use computers.

Each class is independent of the other classes. Registration is not required, however only the first six students in class are guaranteed computers.  Other students may attend the class or bring their own laptops with them, depending on the availability of space. For a full description of the computer classes, please refer to the class schedule.

Mitten Tree and Food Drive

In support of National Mitten Tree Day celebrated on December 6, Thomas Branigan Memorial Library will sponsor, for the second year, a Mitten Tree this holiday season.  Las Cruces residents and library patrons are invited to donate mittens, hats, and scarves to decorate the holiday tree in the library.  In conjunction with the Mitten Tree, a canned food drive is also planned.  All items will be donated to local community organizations such as the Community of Hope, La Casa, Gospel Rescue Mission and the Casa de Peregrinos Food Pantry.

"We are excited to offer a Mitten Tree again. Last year the response by the community was very generous; more than 150 items were donated. Branigan Library wants to do its part to give back to the community and make sure that families have warm winter items," said Renee Frankel, Library Administrator. Donations will be accepted at the Library beginning Monday, November 24 through Friday, December 19 during regular library hours. For more information, please call 575-528-4000.
