Our intent is to "formalize" our RE (Religious Education) Program by asking families to complete a short registration packet in order to gather some additional information about what families want and need from the program," said Frank Guevara, Family Programs Director. "To highlight this kick-off event, we invite all to join us in making ice-cream sundaes after the service."

Silver City, NM – Western New Mexico University is commemorating Hispanic Heritage Month with several events planned between September 15 and October 15. Most events are free to the public and center around food, culture, music, history, and current political issues.

The Silver City Public Library has made adjustments to its mobile internet hotspot lending program to increase the availability of hotspots to a larger number of community members. The changes will take effect starting September 18, 2017.

First of all, starting on September 18 community members will be able to reserve two of the library's hotspots ahead of time. The library will hold the device for the reserving person for 7 days so that they have time to pick it up. "Since we began the hotspot lending program last winter, we have received a very large number of phone calls asking about hotspot availability and whether hotspots can be reserved," explained Lillian Galloway, programming and outreach librarian. "We are glad that we can now make it easier for community members to borrow hotspots by allowing some of the devices to be reserved."
