FY23-24 Courier Estimates

The Courier Team soon will be initiating the annual process of sending out courier cost estimates for the coming service year (October 2023 – September 2024). Those should be showing up in your email inboxes starting after September 20. If you have an urgent need for your library’s estimate, please email courierhelp@clicweb.org and we’ll work to expedite that document.

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!

Your Voice Matters

Believe it or not, it’s been more than 16 years since CLiC has received an increase to the state appropriation it uses to subsidize the statewide courier and other services provided to libraries.

CLiC is working on an advocacy project and is looking for stories about the positive impacts the statewide courier system has on your library, your patrons, and your community. Short and sweet is great, and if you have more you’d like to share please contact us at clichelp@clicweb.org. We’ll be passing on selected stories of impact to members of the CAL Legislative Committee, and we’ll be sharing your library name as well. Thank you for helping us build a picture of how and why courier is a key service for your library, and why resource sharing is crucial for Colorado libraries.

Courier Impacts from COVID-19

Libraries throughout the state have been announcing closures to the public and their communities since Friday, March 13.

CLiC immediately responded by setting up a process for libraries to use in requesting suspension of courier service.
