Irene S. Sweetkind Public Library



The Irene S. Sweetkind Public Library in the Town of Cochiti Lake serves as a

resource for the public good, providing general and timely information. Library

resources provide access to literature, technology, information, and

knowledge for all people. The Library is a site that fosters social interaction,

literacy, and life-long learning for citizens of all ages. 

About Us


In the year 2000, the library became a Public Library member of the New Mexico State Library. Three years later the name of the Cochiti Lake Public Library became the Irene S. Sweetkind Public Library in honor of the library's board of directors president, Irene Sweetkind, who was instrumental in the development of our public library.


The Irene S. Sweetkind Public Library has become the community center for the Town of Cochiti Lake and surrounding communities. Our collection has grown to more than 11,000 books and media. Our computer center provides four state-of-the-art public access computers and one specialized computer for children’s use. We also have a collection of eleven digital tablets (Kindles) with more than 50 books in our digital library and we are a member of the Sandoval County Digital Consortium which provides online access to more than 2500 e-books and audio books.

The library and the Community Fund of Cochiti Lake co-sponsored the Fourth Of July Parade and Picnic. Public events are free and are attended by people from the Town of Cochiti Lake as well as residents from nearby communities and visitors at the Cochiti Lake Campground. The library will be sponsoring a number of new activities for adults and 
children in the coming year.  These will include a Children's Story Hour, Middle School Book Club, High School Book Club, Blood Drives,

readings from local poets and authors and Featured Artists of the Month Shows as well as other projects.  Watch the Town of Cochiti Lake Facebook page and the Library showcase in the Mail Room for updates.
