Library closed but many services available online, by email and at our front entrance

As you no doubt know by now, your library will be closed until Sunday April 5 – and probably longer, depending on the severity of the coronavirus, officially known as COVID-19. Even during these difficult times, though, there are many ways you can continue to use our resources via our website at pagosalibrary.org, and with email or phone requests for materials: 

You can access the catalog from our website to view your account, renew materials and place holds. 

Because of our suspension of courier service between Colorado libraries, you are able to place holds only on our library’s items at this time. All the new books and CDs in this column qualify, as they are in our collection.

For the time being, pickup at the library’s front entrance is available Tuesdays and Fridays from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. To arrange a time for a pickup of items on hold or new items you’d like to enjoy, email us at ruby@pagosalibrary.org or phone us at 970-264-2209 with your requests, be they books, DVDs or CDs. We will check them out to your account and bring them outside at the designated time in a plastic bag. After seeing your library card or other ID though your closed car window, we will set the bag down by your car and go back inside the library. We’ll give you a warm smile, of course, and probably also a friendly wave – but no physical contact for safety’s sake to keep exposure and contact at a minimum between us all.

No drop-offs, please. We’re asking you to keep all materials that you have checked out until this crisis is over instead of returning them to the library or to the uptown dropbox, again to keep exposure and contact at a minimum between us all. As always, you do not need to worry about overdue fees. Also, we will double the number of items that you can check out during this closure.   

Many of our online learning resources can be accessed from your home with your
