User Identification: NNMC students, faculty, and staff school IDs serve as your library card. Community visitors may register with a picture ID (such as a driver's license) and that ID serves as your library card. Your library privileges are for you alone. All users must present an ID to borrow materials.

 

Fines:

Returning Materials: Materials must be returned to the Ben Lujan Library. Renewals may be made by calling 505-747-2243.

Replacing Library Materials: The fee for each book is $50 plus a $10 processing fee and a $10 overdue fee for a total of $70 per unreturned item. The patron will have the option to purchase a new copy of a circulatable item in lieu of paying the fees. However, processing and overdue fees will still be owed. If a book is returned in a damaged condition but can still be circulated with minor repairs, the patron will pay a minimum of $20. If a book cannot be circulated, the patron will pay a minimum of $20. If a book cannot be circulated, that book will be treated as a "lost or unreturned" book.
