The mission of the Acoma Learning Center is to provide adequate services, improve and enrich the lives of our users through information, education, tradition, and recreation.

The learning center’s goal is to provide resources and services to help all community residents of all ages. Our commitment is to make sure our patrons can learn in a relaxed, safe, well-organized, friendly and professional atmosphere. We support all students at any academic level. Our staff is devoted to ensuring the core values and vision of the Acoma Learning Center.

About Us

The Acoma Learning Center was established in the 1970s and 80s in a small brown building in front of the old Tribal Administrative Office in Acoma. After the late 80s, the library was not in existence for a few years within the pueblo. Seeing the need from the community, the Acoma Pueblo administration re-established the library as a tribal program. Since then the library was located at the old bingo snack bar room which was found in the E.D.A. building since the late 90s to 2006. Due to the building being condemned, we vacated and moved into the temporary modular building. In June 2007 the library was moved to a triple-wide modular building near the new housing area in Acoma.

Our Programs

Summer Youth Program

SYP, established in 2010, is an 8-week youth program that serves youth ages 7-14. The goal of the program is to provide community youth with a summer of educational experiences that build on their strengths, talents, and interests.

Acoma Rain Dancers

The Acoma Learning Center established the Acoma Rain Dancers Dance Group in January 2013 after a request was made by some youth patrons for an after school activity. With this request, the staff decided to organize a youth group aimed at increasing involvement in traditional activities and spirituality. The Acoma Learning Center utilizes traditional education to promote individual skills, knowledge and cultural growth.

Acoma Language Class

Not only do we offer an opportunity to learn the language but also help create traditional skill development (such as traditional food preparation, traditional dress & shirt making, moccasin making etc.) We will post classes throughout the year. 

NMSU Title V Program

Title V is a federally funded grant program through the U.S. Department of Education. Title V funding is awarded to institutions of higher education serving, low-income and under represented student populations.
