Casa Camino Real is a bookstore, art gallery and community resource center that celebrates literature and the arts in the borderland region of New Mexico, Texas and Northern México. We are located in Las Cruces, New Mexico, 42 miles from the U.S./México border on the Camino Real and on the original Las Cruces townsite. We believe books are for everyone. When you enter our historic adobe, our motto is "This is the temple where books are sacred." We focus on Southwestern, Regional, Borderland, Native-American, Chicano & Chicana, Latino & Latina, and Multi-Cultural World literature with books in many languages. We feature new, used, first edition and out of print books for adults and children. We also sell Vintage Vinyl records and Mexican folk art. We are building an impressive collection of books from New Mexico settler families. In addition, we have a Geology and Science Collection from the estate of Dr. Sherman Wengard and Dr. Kirtley Mather. Our collections also include a large Photography and Erotica collection, many books we are still putting online. Check our catalogues often. We began our work over 25 years ago as The Border Book Festival, New Mexico's longest running book fair. In 2012, we created Casa Camino Real. We have concentrated over the years in archiving and preserving the history of our region through the development and creation of Museo de La Gente/Museum of the People, an arts residency center, a resource library, a workshop & exhibit space as well as a venue for multi-cultural, multi-generational and multi-ethnic literary, literacy, music and arts events for audiences of all ages and backgrounds. We are a Sanctuary business which honors all people and all sentient life. We welcome visitors from around the globe and believe we can heal and transform the world one cup of Mexican coffee--café de la olla--and one book at a time.
