Main Library Reference Desk (915) 212-READ

New Phone Number

For a good time, dial (915) 212-READ (7323).

On Friday, April 1, the Main Library, located at 501 N. Oregon, will change phone numbers.

The new number to call for any library, reading or research related information will be (915) 212-READ (7323). The change is due to the City of El Paso’s Network and phone upgrade. Eventually, all library branches will change phone numbers to reflect the 212 prefix dedicated to City departments.

As part of the change, the Main Library will use an automated answering system that will redirect callers to the appropriate service area. Many people call the Library for research and information services through the Library’s reference department. That department and all others can still be reached by calling the new main phone number. In order to ease the transition, the old phone numbers will remain effective until the end of April.
