The Colorado State Library has made the following Quick Guides to the Colorado Library Law available. These provide a non-legal summary of the statute language. They are intended to assist you in understanding the meaning of the law, not replace your local legal counsel. Please consult with your library's attorney for any necessary interpretations.
