HistoryEdit

The library started in 1943 as a subscription library, after the donation of $5 by 70 families living in Los Alamos. In 1945 it became free and open to all. In 1985[1] a branch library opened in White Rock. In 1994 the Los Alamos branch moved into its current building designed by architect Antoine Predock[1] and located west of Fuller Lodge.

In 2015, the White Rock branch moved into a new building next to the White Rock Youth Activity Center.
