For health and safety reasons related to COVID-19, Clear Creek County Library District will be closing our library branches (Idaho Springs Public Library, John Tomay Memorial Library, and the Local History Archives) from Saturday, March 14 through Friday, April 17. We hope to resume our normal services on Friday, April 17, but may need to adjust plans based on public health recommendations at that time. Please take advantage of library resources available online from the comfort of your home. We’ll continue to post updates via our website, social media platforms, and paper notices on library doors.

Stay safe! We love our patrons and thank everyone for helping to keep our community safe and healthy.

Connect. Discover. Empower.

The Clear Creek County Library District empowers our community through literacy, human connection, and equal access to resources.
