Does Jefferson County Public Library (JCPL) already have your e-mail address? You can still enter to win!

There are four easy ways to provide your e-mail address:

  1. In person. Complete a form at your favorite JCPL location.
  2. Online at
  3. Leave a voicemail at 303-275-6230.
  4. 4. By mail. If the Library does not have your e-mail address on file, you should receive a postcard in the mail; complete the entry form and mail it back to the Library or bring it to one of our libraries.

Why is the Library soliciting e-mail addresses from patrons?

As a courtesy, the Library mails about 300,000 notices each year to let patrons know the status of their holds and overdue items. This amounts to a lot of mail! As a cost-saving measure, the Library recently changed the way these notices are sent. Now, instead of a first-class letter, patrons receive a postcard. The Library is saving tax-payer dollars and reducing waste; however, due to privacy concerns, the postcard notices do not contain titles of your holds or overdue materials.

A better option for patrons, and the Library, is share this information by e-mail. Holds and overdue notices sent through e-mail include detailed information that doesn't appear on the new postcards. And the Library will never share or sell your e-mail address with outside entities.

Prize drawings will be held Sept. 14, Oct. 1 and Nov. 1, so enter today!
