On the ground, at the point of need

Where is Ross? He can be found roving all across the Western Slope.

CLiC Consultants – your colleagues on call. They create connections for libraries: one-on-one visits or one-with-many gatherings. They share their expertise, inform about library trends, teach skills, support library initiatives, and most of all listen.

The best part; as your colleagues on call, their help is FREE. Each one is a quick phone call or email away.

Growing Library Staff

Spring Workshops in Grand Junction, Ft. Morgan and Pueblo are the must-attend event each spring. Rich content delivered by experts inspires attendees to be creative and innovative in their libraries. Staffers return from workshops invigorated and eager to improve the library experience in their communities.

With its ear to the ground CLiC also develops custom content to meet the special needs of library staff. From leadership topics to emerging tech, CLiC is responsive to the learning needs of the library community.

Send and receive materials right from your back door

Few services are as ubiquitous or as cost effective as the Courier, the physical delivery side of interlibrary loan.

Colorado libraries lend or borrow millions of items from one another: books, CDs, DVDs and more! At an average of $.23 per item (2016), participating libraries pay to transport material throughout Colorado, receiving courier service three, four or five days a week.

Each year more than 2.6 million items move through the statewide courier. That’s enough materials to stack 30 items high on every seat at Sports Authority Field.

Powering Small Libraries

Joining the AspenCat union catalog transforms a library’s collection. Equivalent to the second largest public library in Colorado with more than 1.4 million items, AspenCat demonstrates that small libraries together form a “big gorilla.” Unified, small libraries can exponentially increase access to material for their patrons, literally exploding the size of their collections.
