Library & Archives
The Indian Pueblo Cultural Center's Library & Archives are the only special collections and research library specifically devoted to preserving the history and culture of Pueblo people. With our library we are perpetuating the culture and history of the 19 Pueblos of New Mexico, as well as Ysleta del Sur Pueblo in El Paso, Texas.
