Hot SpotsIt’s no trick! We have a new treat to offer you. Soon you'll be able to place a hold, check out and take home a Wi-Fi Hot Spot. Yes! It’s true.

Today’s families rely on the Internet for many reasons, including student access to online homework and access to the many digital resources made available by the Library. But not everybody has home access.

We have 100 new devices and you can check them out for seven days at a time. We believe these devices will meet a very real demand and supports our mission of making technology accessible to all.

Our mission is to provide equal access to information and opportunity to all the residents of Jefferson County, and when our community voted to support the 2015 mill levy, we became enabled to improve our ability to provide that access to new and emerging technologies and increase digital literacy countywide.  [The crowd cheers!]  

In addition to the 100 hot spots, we’ve added ten WiFi enabled tablets that are now in circulation at Edgewater and Wheat Ridge Libraries.

Fall Break Fun

Here comes Thanksgiving week, everybody! The kids are out of school and we’re all excited for the feast. If you’re searching for fun activities to keep the family entertained, look no further than your local Jeffco Library.  This year, in addition to movies, crafts, and special Story Times, we’re under a wizard’s spell. To celebrate the new movie, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, we have a ton of Harry Potter fun in addition to the cornucopia of turkey-themed activities. See what's in store and prepare to gobble it up.
