Interested in being able to get library materials through contactless curbside pick-up? Easy!

    • Login to your account  Never done this before?  Give us a call and we will walk you through it!
    • Place a hold on items that you want.
      1) Be sure the items say they are Nederland items.
      2) If you need them within 24 hours, be sure they say they are on the shelf.
    • Our staff prepares items to be picked up before we open at 10 a.m., so if you have an urgent need after 10 a.m. to pick something up, please call us so we can get them ready. We disinfect all items when they are returned to us and before they are picked up, and extra precautions take extra time. Please be patient with us and recognize that staff and patron safety is our top priority.
    • Call us – 303-258-1101 – when you are at the library and we will bring your items out and place them on the pick-up table for you. Please remember curbside pick-up is only available 10 a.m.- 2 p.m., Monday-Saturday.
    • If possible, please pick up your items from the back of the library (3rd street) next to the materials drop-off bin.
    • When you’re finished, you can return your items to the bin.

Summer Journaling Program

A unique Summer Journaling Program, Tell Your Story,
at Nederland Community Library!

Our goal is to have as many community members as possible keep a journal of their 2020 summer (we will provide optional writing prompts each week) and donate these journals to a new special collection at the library. These books will be available for check-out, and will become an important part of our archives. We see this as an incredible opportunity to document history as history is made.

  • A book-making and journaling kit, appropriate for different ages and skill levels will be provided by the library.
  • Weekly small-group classes will be begin in July (following all Boulder County health guidelines).
  • Online video tutorials and written instructions are available on our website and YouTube channel.

Our timeline is to start having 2020 Summer Journals turned into the library by the end of August.
