  • New Cards: call us at 303-665-5200, or you may get an temporary online card which allows you to reserve and borrow physical items, use Overdrive/Libby for ebooks and audiobooks, and gain access many of our online magazine and database subscriptions. (If you do not want physical items and only want to download, you may instead use their instant card just for ebooks and audiobooks).
  • Curbside Hold Pickup (by Appointment): Lafayette cardholders may request up to 25 items from Lafayette and other FLC libraries using their current or new Lafayette Library account. When the items are ready, you will be notified and given a link to make an appointment for a 1-hour pickup window. Visit Curbside Hold Pickup for details.
  • Items from other FLC Libraries or Prospector/New items: Holds and requests on physical items from other FLC libraries have resumed, but Prospector requests remain suspended indefinitely. Overdrive items can be put on hold. We are not able to purchase new materials at this time.
  • Due Dates: Most due dates are being extended automatically; however, overdue items do not incur any fines.
  • Returning Your Items: The outdoor book drops are now open (but do close over holidays). 
  • Renew Cards: recently expired or expiring cards have been renewed. Questions? Contact us online or call 303-661-5200 and leave a message. Staff will monitor phone message and emails and reply as time permits.
