Our primary resources are our volunteers, but we cooperate with many other organizations in Taos. Ask us what you need.
We hope that these links will be helpful to you.

We are a member of Village-to-Village Network, which has a very useful website.
This article has many good ideas for living at home, with these chapters:
If you don't already know, the Taos Public Library has 60,000 books, plus CDs and DVDs — the latter includes an excellent collection of PBS and BBC programs.
New Mexico State Library 1-800-395-9144, 1209 Camino Carlos Rey, Santa Fe 87507-9144 has Services for the Blind.
Also: Books by mail — Joanne Foreman has used this for years. They send a print catalog four times a year (or via computer if you wish) you phone or write in your requests, and they appear in your mailbox! This is mostly popular stuff — mysteries, westerns, romance, sci-fi, cookbooks — but also children's' books to read to your grandchildren, etc. I find it an excellent supplement to the local library. The Books By Mail comes in a canvas bag, with an address card you simply reverse to send back. NO POSTAGE CHARGE. (Our tax money being used for our needs and services!!)
Speaking of which: The Talpa Public Library, located in the old Talpa School (now the Talpa Community Center) has 9000 books, movies, and a complete collection of Shakespeare plays on CD — also books for sale cheap. You need not be a Talpa resident to get a card. Open 10-3, Mon.-Fri. This is especially close to Joanne’s heart, as she is one of the founders of this library...
The Taos Jewish Center has a library too — obviously, books of Judaic interest, but of course anyone may use.
