Inactive patron accounts deleted from JCPL system
To keep our records up-to-date, the Library recently removed accounts that haven't had library card activity in the past three years. This isn't an attempt to dissuade certain users - we want all of our patrons to always feel welcome. Periodically removing inactive records is necessary to keep JCPL in compliance with requirements from the State of Colorado.
What does this mean for patrons? Your library account is updated only when you check out materials; unfortunately, using your account to reserve a computer or access one of our online databases does not update your record. If you haven't checked out materials from the Library in the past three years, your account is classified inactive and has been removed from the system.
If your account has been deleted, a new card can be issued at any of JCPL's libraries - all you need is a photo ID. Take this opportunity to select one of JCPL's new library card designs. If you still have your old card and would like to keep the account number, bring the card and a photo ID to the Library and it will be reactivated.
This can be avoided in the future by checking out materials from the Library at least once a year.

Join Summer Reading Club and get a laugh at the Library
The fun begins on June 1 and continues through July 31. Jefferson County Public Library’s Summer Reading Club is a great way to spend the long, hot summer days. The Library offers something for everyone with clubs for kids, teens and adults. Themes and activities for all three Summer Reading Clubs are comedy-related. Our Library staff promises a summer full of laughter and smiles. Making participation even more meaningful is the annual combined reading challenge sponsored by the Library Foundation. This year, if children and teens read 150,000 hours collectively, the Foundation will donate $1,000 to the Victim Services Kids’ Program of the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office to purchase new books.
