Since 1963, Aguilar Public Library has been an integral part of Aguilar Colorado, located in the NW county of Las Animas.

In 1969 the library found a new residence that was constructed out of a vacant two story brick building named the Morris Pitti Opera House, (early 1900s). The bricks from the 2nd story were dismantled, 50,000 total, then used for the construction of the library which then opened its doors a year later in 1970.

Our mission is to strengthen our community through literacy and lifelong learning by providing equal access to materials for everyone. We’re not only a place to come and read we’re a center for socializing, discovery, creativity, and empowerment.

With our growing collection of books for all ages as well as a DVD section, we’re helping to engage with a new generation of learners, and establishing the foundations to bring people, ideas, and information together into the future.

The library offers the availability of desk and lap-top computers within the library, indoor wi-fi only, as well as printing and scanning.
