WHAT IF I DON'T LIVE IN ARAPAHOE COUNTY?
That's okay, we love to share! We issue Colorado Library cards to any Colorado resident with a photo ID and proof of address. Once you're in, you're family and you'll have all the same benefits as our local patrons.
Just passing through? Welcome to Colorado! Visit any Arapahoe Libraries location and we'll set you up with a temporary resident card. If you can't come into a library contact us for more options. With a temporary resident card you can check out up to seven items, use the library computers, request and renew items and access online resources.
Temporary resident cards are also available to patrons in temporary housing, including homeless shelters or rehabilitation facilities (check out community resources for more information).
