• GCLD serves all residents of Grand County. The libraries provide many resources at www.gcld.org: books, magazines, and audiobooks on CD; 24/7 access to online resources such as e-books, e-audiobooks, e-magazines, and online learning; public computers with Internet access, Wi-Fi, office services, public meeting rooms, quiet study spaces, assistance from library staff, free library cards, and even musical instruments. Providing a great space and resources to elevate learning and enrich the lives of our community and guests is the purpose of GCLD.
  • While providing community space and meeting rooms is important to the mission of GCLD, the library is much more than a community center. Our core purpose is to elevate learning and enrich the lives of our community by providing information, literature, online access, and assistance for those needing help locating or processing information.
  • The Library District provides some after-school programming, but is not an “after-school center.” Libraries are not staffed, nor are they legally set-up to provide childcare services as a daycare center would be. Libraries serve a very different function in the community.
  • The Library District provides access to a diverse collection of materials, expressing a variety of viewpoints and value systems. This diversity is critical to a library’s mission.
  • The Library District provides programming which adds value to the lives of citizens of all ages. From 1,000 Books before Kindergarten to the Senior Book Club, opportunities are available for all ages and types of individuals.
