FAQ:

Is the library open? - See above for updated hours.

Yes! We are open beginning Monday, June 29. In order to preserve the health and safety of our staff and community, we have condensed our services and provided hours for vulnerable populations. We ask that when you visit the library you wear a mask, follow social distancing guidelines, and continue to use curbside pickup for holds as the stacks will be closed during this time.


What services is the library offering?- Computers, Printing, & Faxing ONLY.

At this time patrons can ONLY use the computers, print, copy, and fax. Patrons will do their own printing, faxing and copying. Any assistance a staff member provides must be while social distancing and with the use of gloves and mask. Patrons who refuse to wear a mask will not receive one-on-one help. We are sorry there is No Browsing at this time


How many persons are allowed in the building? 

Ten persons, excluding staff, will be allowed in the building at one time.


How long can patrons be in the building? 

In order to provide all community members an opportunity to use our services, there is a one-hour time limit per patron, per day.


Can I use a computer?

Yes. Computers are limited due to safe distancing guidelines. Please call us at 303-857-7180 to reserve a computer time. Computer reservations are for same day only.


What about Curbside Pickup?- 

We are still offering curbside pickup, as it will be the only way to receive your items. Patrons will not be able to browse the stacks or check out items while in the library. Please continue to place items on hold and we will contact you to schedule a pickup time. 


Are you still offering programs?

Yes! All programs are being offered virtually via our Facebook page and Go To Meeting. You do not need to have a Facebook account to participate in these programs. For Go To Meeting, simply use the link and password in the event descriptions on our website here or Facebook here.


What about Summer Reading Program?

What will happen to my items on hold?

We will continue to contact patrons via phone or email to schedule a pickup time. Please note, you need to have a scheduled time to pick up items as there will be no drop in pickups.


Can I return my items?

You can return you items now using the book drop. To ensure the health and safety of our patrons, returned items will be held for a specific time to meet CDC guidelines before recirculating.

All of our streaming and downloadable services are available now. This includes Overdrive/Libby (ebooks, audiobooks, and comics), Hoopla (music, movies, ebooks, audiobooks, and comics), Kanopy (movies), Freegal (streaming and downloadable music), and Flipster (magazines).
