Quality of Life
Welcome to Quality of Life! We are here to provide great service!
The City of Las Cruces seeks to be a customer focused, higher performing organization through PEAK Performance achieving better customer service, continuous improvements, transparency, and better communication.
Quality of life has been listed as the number one reason people are attracted to any great city. The Quality of Life Department is the primary provider of these services to the citizens of Las Cruces.
Whether it is a good read, a companionable meal, a new cultural experience, or a safe trip, the Quality of Life Department prides itself in offering top customer service to meet the needs of our community. We provide life enriching services to the public and visitors through four distinct, yet interconnected sections:
- Las Cruces Museum System
- Senior Programs
- Thomas Branigan Memorial Library

We are proud to be your “Quality of Life” provider.
The mission of the Quality of Life Department is to provide customer-focused transportation, library, museum, and senior services to residents, businesses, and guests, so they can enrich their lives.
