"Staff will come back to the library on April 27 and that will allow us to receive materials that have been in homes since our closure and allow us to disinfect those materials and allow us that week to fully prepare for a limited opening," said Nick Potter from the Pueblo City-Couty Library District.

As part of the district’s continued commitment to serve the Pueblo community, the library’s website page, The Library @ Home is the digital hub for patrons to access virtual programming, expanded e-resources, at-home learning tools for parents and students, online research tools, and more. The Library @ Home can be accessed by going to www.pueblolibrary.org/thelibraryathome

For individuals who do not have a card, they can get an immediate electronic card at www.pueblolibrary.org via the link “Get a library card.” This immediate card will allow patrons to access the full array of online library services.
