Update: Courier codes discontinued or changed for 2021/22 service year

Man unloading bins from truck

The Courier Team has wrapped up all the internal details for the 2021/22 renewal process, and 35 libraries have discontinued service for this year. As always, you can check courier status and find codes at https://courier.clicweb.org/.

Pause for a moment and think about the impact of statewide resource sharing. Here’s a quote from a Western Slope library patron about why statewide resource sharing is so important, “I am an avid reader, usually having at least 2 books on my reading table, as well as one audio book in my car for commuting and another audio book in my house for distraction during housework and exercising. I always have several materials on my Hold list (today I have 8). I am so grateful for the courier service that brings me materials from our District, as well as outside it. In fact, my life would be so much drearier without it!

That right there is why we do all the work that makes statewide resource sharing happen!

If you have preprinted courier slips on hand, please discard slips for the libraries listed below.
