Getting a library card
To check out library materials and use library computers, permanent and part-time residents can apply for a library card by showing a government issued photo ID and proof of their mailing address. Visitors that wish to make use of library materials and services can apply for a visitor card.
Library card applications must be filled out and signed in person at the library. Completed applications will be processed within 1 day and the library card will be mailed to the patron’s mailing address, unless proof of mailing is provided, in which the patron will receive his/her card on the spot. On the day of application, a new patron may check out 1 item and/or receive a guest pass for using the computers.
New patrons are limited to borrowing 5 items at time. After 3 months, permanent and part-time resident cardholders can check out up to 25 library items (DVD limit=7) for 3 weeks at a time and use the statewide SWIFT interlibrary loan service. Patrons must present their physical library card or photo ID to check out library materials.
A parent or guardian must sign for a child 16 or under.
Replacement cards are $2.
Getting a visitor card
Temporary guests in the Pagosa Springs area can apply for a visitor card. Visitor cards are issued at the time of application and expire after 3 months, or at a time determined by length of stay. Visitors can check out up to 5 items at a time. Visiting patrons must present their physical library card photo ID to check out library materials. Visitors do not have access to the statewide SWIFT interlibrary loan service.
Getting a guest pass
Guests ages 17 and older can request a guest pass at the circulation desk. A guest pass allows a daily session (1 hour) of library computer use.
No library card? No ID? No problem!
We offer guest passes for those people who need to access the internet or may have forgotten their card.
