What's New!

PPLD will provide amnesty for all overdue Library items returned between March 6 and March 26. Late fees on overdue materials returned to a staff member during this time will be waived. PPLD is offering the amnesty to welcome community members back to the Library and materials back into the collection.

Earlier this year, PPLD eliminated overdue fines on children and teen materials and lowered overdue fines on DVDs and video games. These changes were implemented to remove barriers to Library service. The amnesty program is another way to help invite people back to the Library and ensure our resources are available to the community we serve.

Library patrons who have other outstanding fines are encouraged to come to the Library during the amnesty period to discuss ways to resolve account issues.

The amnesty program is only effective March 6 through March 26, 2017.

The Pikes Peak Library District is currently seeking volunteers to staff a new program initiative: Repair Fairs! Volunteer “Fixers” are needed to help with a new community-wide fix-it program, where people can bring in broken items to the library and receive help learning how to troubleshoot and fix the item rather than throwing it away.

Can you…

  • Repair tires, chains, or brakes for bikes?
  • Mend, hem, or patch clothing or other fabric items?
  • Test, dismantle, or fix small appliances, vacuum cleaners, lamps, etc.?
  • Assess, disassemble, or possibly repair electronics and computers?
  • Repair broken jewelry?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, help your local community by becoming a Fixer!

To apply, print this application form as well as this skill specialty questionnaire and drop them off at East Library Att: Amber Cox, or email both to acox@ppld.org. Submissions are due by March 31.

Please contact Amber Cox at (719) 531-6333 x1305 or acox@ppld.org with questions.

Location(s): TBD
Hours: Will vary by location

Beginning Jan. 9, 2017, PPLD will no longer charge fines on overdue children and teen items. Removing overdue fines will provide greater opportunity for children and teens to use the full range of library services. Currently, 15% of children and teen cardholders are blocked from checking out items at the library due to overdue fines.

Also, overdue fines on DVDs and games will be reduced from 25 cents per day to 10 cents per day.

PPLD seeks to foster literacy and life-long learning for children and teens. The Library regularly evaluates policies to see what barriers for service exist and evaluates how to eliminate such barriers. The Library’s Board of Trustees approved the new policy at their December meeting.

Items that will not accrue overdue fines must be designated as “juvenile” or “teen” in the Library catalog. The policy will take effect for any items checked out January 9 or after. Lost item and damage fees will still apply.

Overdue notices will still be sent as reminders to return Library items. Items not returned within 21 days of the due date will be considered lost, and the full cost of the item will be charged to the patron’s account.
