Borrowing/My Account

Do the libraries have MP3 players?

All five branches of the Grand County Library District loan MP3 players. The kit inclues 1 MP3 player, 1 set of earbuds and 1 extra battery. We also loan pre-loaded MP3 players called "PlayAways." These devices are available in the library catalog and check out for 3 weeks.

Can I check out a DVD player?

  • Yes! DVD players are available to check out.
  • You may put one on hold to pick up at any branch.
  • You must return the DVD player to the branch your borrowed it from.
  • Please do not put DVD players in any of the drop boxes.

What is "my reading history?"

We are often asked to provide a "reading history" for library account holders. Unfortunately, your reading history is not available unless you turn the option ON within your library account. Disclaimer: The library takes seriously the privacy of your library records. Therefore, we do not keep track of what you borrow after you return it.

However, our automated system has a feature called “My Reading History” that allows you to track items you check out. Participation in the feature is entirely voluntary. You may start or stop using it, as well as delete any or all entries in “My Reading History” at any time. If you choose to start recording “My Reading History”, you agree to allow our automated system to store this data.

The library staff does not have access to your “My Reading History”, however, it is subject to all applicable local, state, and federal laws, and under those laws, could be examined by law enforcement authorities without your permission. If this is of concern to you, you should not use the “My Reading History” feature.

How do I search the catalog?

Grand County Library District is a member of the Marmot Library Network, so GCLD customers have access to many more library materials than just GCLD's collections.  Get started finding items in the catalog at http://gcld.marmot.org.  Placing requests for items will allow the delivery of items to your preferred library branch for you to pick up. 

Need more help?  Stop by one of the five library branches in Grand County and get assistance from library staff.

How do I turn on "my reading history"?

My Reading History is a record of the titles you have checked out from the library. It is accessible online when you login to My Library Account. The Reading History records the title, author, and checkout date for all items you check out. This feature also allows you to limit a search to items that are not recorded in your Reading History. Titles are stored in "My Reading History" until the Library no longer owns a title or you choose to delete a title from your list.

You may turn your Reading History ON or OFF any time when you login to My Library Account. If you choose to activate your Reading History, and later turn it off, all stored records will be deleted from the system. Please be aware that if you elect to keep a Reading History, it may be subject to examination by law enforcement authorities without your permission.
