Using the library

Getting a Library Card

Anyone living within the district is eligible for a card, and seasonal residents are invited to use a Guest Card. A Guest Card requires a $20 refundable deposit.  Our libraries participate in Colorado Libraries Collaborate (CLC) program. We offer reciprocal borrowing privileges to non-NSCLD residents who are library card holders from another Colorado library.

Lost cards will be replaced as needed.
