Library Information


Branigan Library is the fourth largest library in the state of New Mexico and has proudly served the people of Las Cruces and Doña Ana County since 1935.

Branigan Library offers books, magazines, newspapers, DVDs, audio books, downloadable audio books, public computers, access to powerful research databases, family programming, movies and much, much more!

The computer lab, which had such humble beginnings in the early 1990s with three computers, has grown to more than  twenty public computers with access to the internet and a whole range of computer programs and a laser printer. The Library also added two coin opperated copy machines and a self-service fax machine.

Las Crucens can always count on something happening at the Library; whether its a movie, a children's story hour, the book club's monthly meetings, a poetry reading, a concert or author visit, the public knows Branigan Library for more than just books.
