The La Veta Public Library building will remain closed until April 30.

The Library’s digital and online resources will continue to be available (you can find links to these on our website on the sidebar on the right-hand side of every web page –>).

  • The Library’s public wifi will remain open and available to all.
  • The book drop will remain open for you to return materials.
