Anyone who lives, works, or owns property in Gunnison County may apply for a library card. Western State Colorado University students are also eligible. Proof of residency or employment and an application (signed by a parent or guardian if the applicant is under 13 years old) are required.
Persons residing outside of Gunnison County may also use the Library’s materials and equipment by presenting a driver’s license, or other official form of identification, such as passport or student ID. A local address with telephone number is required, as well as an application.
To ensure fair and equal access for all library users, we do require that you login with a library card number to use the computer. The computers are available for a ½ hour session. If there is no one else waiting for a computer, you can extend your session time as available.
If you are not eligible for a library card, you can ask at the desk for a guest pass.
Wireless Internet Access (Wi-Fi) is available for access throughout our libraries. To access our wireless, connect to the network “library” and open a web browser. Wireless users must abide by the Library’s Computer Use policy.
