eBooks: New Mexico Reads



The app used to read and listen to books through New Mexico reads has migrated to a new platform called Boundless as of

October 1, 2023.

There are some great features in the new app. We are excited about the change and hope you are too.

If you already use Axis360 (the previous app), you should have migrated automatically to Boundless.

If you are signing up for NM Reads after the app conversion, you will simply download the Boundless app.

Please note that the Boundless app is supported in iOS 13 and above, and Android 9 and above.

Nothing will be lost. All your user information and history, including holds position, has been seamlessly transitioned into the new Boundless platform. Any bookmarks, notes, and other saved data has been transitioned as well.
