Discover the Loveland Library This Summer

Living in Loveland CO has its benefits, chief among them is access to the Loveland public library. It’s a literature lover’s paradise, but even people that aren’t avid readers can find something to enjoy at the state-of-the-art facility.

What You’ll Find at the Loveland Public Library

Books are just the beginning of what City of Loveland library has to offer. The Loveland library understands that many patrons have gone digital. The library has a complete downloadable selection with eBooks and audiobooks in all genres.

The computer lab is one of the library’s main attractions, allowing all cardholders to hop on and surf the web or use one of the many programs that’s loaded up on each computer. The library even offers computer classes in the new iLearn classroom. It’s a large space with 15 computer terminals and the latest technology. Teachers walk students through skills and programs including:

  • PowerPoint
  • Excel
  • Microsoft Word
  • Computer Basics
  • Using the Internet
  • Gmail

The learning space is even available for outside groups to reserve whenever there isn’t a class in session. Librarians can also work with people one-on-one in the space if they have a specific question about a program or device.

If you need to do research the Loveland public library is an excellent resource, especially if you’re trying to find information on local history and genealogy. If you need help or want tips on using the Loveland library’s resources for research the librarians are extremely helpful and are always happy to step in and locate the information you’re looking for.

Teens

Every year the Loveland library hosts a teen reading program. Kids in grades 6-12 can register for the program to join in on special events, win prizes and start working away at the popular summer reading list.

During the summer homework is the last thing on the minds of teens, but when September rolls around they can also get homework help at the Loveland public library.

  • The Chess Club
