Carrizozo Community Public Library and Archive (CCPL&A) will soon move into its future location on 406 Central Avenue.
An actual date for the clean up and bookstore move to the old senior center will be determined when the county has vacated the premise completely. CCPL&A and Friends of the Library have toured the almost vacant building.
The touring group included board members of the Lincoln County Historical Society (LCHS), who have made plans to move their headquarters from Lincoln to the library. The LCHS move to Carrizozo (county seat) will allow historians to research just within a block of the Lincoln County government offices.

Now the book phrase on that building could be rightly applied instead to the neighboring building that will house CCPL&A. Eager readers are waiting for the doors to open in 2017 at the former senior citizens building.
