NEW! RESOURCES AND SERVICES IN 2021
2021 @ Your Library
By Leslie Jackson, Circulation Manager
The staff at the Rampart Library District have been working hard to continue bringing resources and services to our community during this time. We are excited to highlight several new and updated offerings for 2021.
Internet On The Go
Check out a Sprint WiFi Hotspot and get internet access wherever you go. Please note: If Sprint service is not available in your location the Sprint WiFi Hotspot will not work.
New To Our Catalog
New search options under “Prospector” allows patrons to search the collections of many additional Colorado libraries and universities.
The Colorado Historical Newspapers collection can now be searched through our catalog.
New Books
Based on community feedback, we have changed our New Book lending rules. In an effort to better serve our patrons, New Books will remain on our shelves for six months before being made available to other libraries. New Books can be placed on hold and checked out for three weeks, but cannot be renewed.

NEW LOAN RULES FOR NEW BOOKS
