If you’ve read about it in the newspaper lately or heard the rumors that the library will be open on Mondays, this is true!
Beginning September 6th (the day after Labor Day), the library will begin observing a new schedule that will be effective for all the El Paso Public Library Branches. The Main Library downtown will still be open 7 days a week, but all the other branches will be open Monday through Saturday.

Here is the new schedule, which takes effect on September 6th:

Tuesday: 10am – 7pm
Wednesday: 10am – 7pm
Thursday: 10am – 7pm
Friday: 1pm – 6pm

As part of the new El Paso Ready to Read initiative that the director of El Paso Public Library, Dionne Mack-Harvin, has created, all the El Paso Public Libraries will now offer storytime on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays at 11:00 am. During the week, the Cielo Vista library will offer a program just for toddlers ages 2-3, Toddler Tuesdays, and continue to offer Preschool Storytime on Wednesdays. Of course, babies and older siblings are still welcome to attend on Tuesdays as well as the new Family Storytime that the library will have on Saturdays for kids of all ages.

Cielo Vista Library staff member Liz provides this review for a new and riveting young adult novel:
In Falling Under we meet Theia Alderson, a young lady that although smart and beautiful has always been naïve on how to be herself and enjoy life to the fullest. When she meets Haden, a gorgeous and very hot young man, she starts feeling a shift in herself. She tries to be the same but for some reason she finds herself giving into her desires. The only problem is that there are two Hadens: the one in her dreams and the all too real boy that starts at her school. Why are there two Hadens and why do they treat her so differently? Theia is willing to find out, even if it means risking it all. She just might fall under!
