The New Mexico State University Library announces the release of its 2016 calendar, “Chiles: Red or Green?” With fall in the Mesilla Valley bringing the aroma of roasting chiles, bring home some local flavor to your yearly calendar collection with the new 2016 chile-infused NMSU Library calendar.
The vivid photos have a variety of sources: from the NMSU Library’s own Dave DeWitt Collection, shot by our own NMSU Librarian Cindy Watkins, and supplied from the NMSU University Archives photo collection. Each month will also feature a highlighted recipe from the Dave DeWitt Cookbook Collection housed in NMSU Library’s Archives and Special Collections Department. For example, June’s recipe “Tomatillo-chicken enchiladas with two kinds of green chile” was reprinted from DeWitt’s book The Southwest Table. To read this recipe and others like it, you can purchase a calendar for only $10 each. Proceeds support the NMSU Library.
The calendars are available at the NMSU Library’s Administration Office, Room 224, Zuhl Library and at the Archives and Special Collections Department, Branson Library, 4th floor. Supplies are limited. Metered parking can be found near Zuhl Library when turning onto Jordan Road from University Avenue. Parking on campus is free after 4:30 p.m. For more questions about the calendar or ordering, please contact NMSU Library Administration, (575) 646-1508.
