NEW LOAN RULES FOR NEW BOOKS

 
In an effort to make sure our library patrons get access to new books first, we've changed some of our lending rules. We hope you enjoy having first dibs on our new titles!

All books with a "NEW"  sticker can be checked out for one week and can be renewed as long as there is not a hold placed on the books. 

This does not affect your ability to get new books from other libraries.

Virtual Services

Many of our library patrons visit the library to use the internet. If patrons have their own personal device, a cell phone, laptop or tablet, they can access the library’s Wi-Fi from outside either of our facilities. At the Woodland Park Public Library, a password is not necessary. If outside the Florissant Public Library, the password information is located on a sign above the book drop. 
 

 
The Rampart Library District’s digital resources are available from our website. Patrons need a library card to access our digital resources. If patrons do not have a library card, they can get a temporary library card. Temporary library cards are valid for three months and give patrons immediate access to digital resources. To obtain a temporary library card visit the Rampart Library District catalog and select “Login.” A window will pop-up. Select “Register For A New Library Card.”
 
Patrons can use Overdrive and the Libby by Overdrive to check out ebooks and eaudiobooks. Patrons access Overdrive with the Libby by Overdrive app on their personal devices or through our website. If patrons do not have the Libby, by Overdrive app on their personal devices, the instructions to download the app are available under the “e-Content” tab on the Rampart Library District website. The link to Overdrive on our website is also available under the “e-Content” tab.
 

The TumbleBook Library is also available for use by our patrons. TumbleBooks is a collection of animated, talking picture books for elementary school children K-6. TumbleBooks are created from existing picture books with animation, music, narration and sound added. There is a wide selection of stories including French and Spanish language books. The TumbleBook Library collection, as well as a tutorial, can be accessed under the "e-Content" tab on the Rampart Library District website. 

A variety of databases are available under the “Research” tab on our website.  Educational databases include the Explora, History Reference Center, and Middle Search Plus databases.
