Due to concerns about COVID-19, Skeen Library will be implementing the following changes until further notice. This is a rapidly changing situation so please check back for more information and updates.

For up-to-date information, please visit:


 Online resources are still available (you must have an active library account in order to access these materials). For more information regarding access to the library's resources, you can chat/IM with a Skeen Library staff member (chat icon in bottom right corner of this page), contact us at, or text us at 575-214-7621

Our hours of availablity are posted on our main web page.


  1. Curbside pickup of physical items available. We urge our patrons to use our online sources as much as possible. Because the building is closed, patrons cannot directly access the physical collections. Patrons may submit requests for physical items in the collection by filling out this form. Restrictions apply. Reservations are not required for curbside pickup.
  2. Electronic ILL only - no physical items.  Library ILL services will be restricted to electronic only - any new physical item requests (either lending or borrowing) will be denied. We will continue to honor requests where the items can be delivered digitally, such as scanned articles and book chapters. Learn more about ILL here!

  3. Electronic Resources still available online!  All electronic library resources will still be available through your library account/login. Please make sure that your Library Account is active so you can access all of our digital resources remotely. If your account is expired or your access is restricted, please contact the Circulation Desk for assistance (chat, email, text). 

  4. Library building is accessible by reservation only. If you have a valid NMT ID, email address, and 900#, you may make a reservation for a workstation, printing, or scanning.
  5. Room reservations requests are suspended. To encourage social distancing, we will not be taking room reservation requests until further notice.

  6. Library-sponsored events are canceled. Events such as Engage the World and Popcorn Thursdays have been canceled until further notice. For OSL events, please visit the OSL website for more information.

For any questions regarding Library hours or services, please check out our main page, or contact us with further questions.

Again, we apologize for any inconvenience these temporary changes may cause. Thank you for your understanding as we continue to monitor and adjust to this rapidly changing environment. Please stay safe and healthy.
