NEW Virtual Programming Website!

While the Rampart Library District buildings remain close, the Youth Services team and library staff have created fun and interesting virtual programming for library patrons. 

To make access to our virtual programs easier for library patrons, all virtual programs can be found on the Rampart Library District's Virtual Programming website. Visit the website at
Virtual Services

Many of our library patrons visit the library to use the internet. We have made the decision to keep our Wi-Fi on so that it is available to the public. 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 still from our website during our closure, 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. The Medline Plus database provides patrons with information about conditions, medications, and wellness issues. The Colorado Historic Newspapers Collection database allows patrons to access Colorado newspapers from 1859-2019.
