Library Services

Need help with a research project? Schedule a 20-minute one-on-one appointment with a librarian to get individualized help finding credible resources for research papers/projects.

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

If you need to use a study room, you can use one for up to two hours with your student ID. Rooms seat 2-3 people and are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please see staff at the library main desk to sign up for a room.

Laptops and graphing calculators can be checked out for up to four hours with your student ID at both campuses. In Lakewood, ask at the main desk in the library. In Arvada, please see the Lab Coordinator.

In partnership with the Colorado Devision of Parks and Wildlife, Red Rocks Library participates in the Check Out State Parks program. This program allows students, staff, and faculty at Red Rocks to check out a pass that gives you free admission to all 41 Colorado state parks.

Weary of low-quality student research? Do you KNOW in your teacher’s heart that it could be better? We can help! If you require your students to complete a research project, we can design a custom library instruction session for them. Sessions are available in the Library’s Sandstone Room or in your classroom, on either campus.
