  • A Note From The Executive Director
  • The Equal Access Poster that hangs in all of our library locations is simply a document to affirm the Library’s steadfast assurance to maintaining an inclusive environment that serves and welcomes ALL people.
  • The Poudre River Public Library District will never condone any behaviors that spread bigotry, discrimination, stereotyping, harassment or racism.
  • We open our doors daily to offer an environment where people of all ages, backgrounds, and cultures can find a caring and supportive environment whereby users can engage in lifelong learning, creativity and discovery. Everyone is welcome here.
