Book A Librarian

Need help with a research project? Schedule a 20-minute one-on-one or small group appointment with a librarian to get individualized help finding credible resources for research papers/projects. For a longer session, stack another booking on the end of the initial one.

If you are a faculty or staff member who would like to book a lesson with a librarian for your whole class, please click on Instruction Lessons.

Course Reserves

Textbooks are available for four-hour checkout at both the Lakewood and Arvada campuses. At Lakewood, ask at the main desk in the library. Search to see if your textbook is available.

Study Rooms

Study rooms are available for a two-hour checkout and are first come, first serve. Please, bring your student ID to the library's front desk to check out a study room.


Laptops can be checked out for up to four hours with your student ID at both campuses. We also have semester-long checkouts on a first-come-first-serve basis. If we have any available, it will show up as on option on our checkout appointment form here.

Parks Passes
