Carnegie Library for Local History Research Policy and Fees
Visiting the Carnegie Library is encouraged to make the most of your research. The images available in the online catalog are only a fraction of the resources available at Carnegie. The Carnegie staff will assist you with identifying and locating the available genealogical and archival resources. If you cannot visit in-person, research and copies of materials may be requested by mail or email.
Mail or email requests:
Please make a written inquiry with as much specific information as possible including: names, dates, specific eras, places in Boulder County, as well as information and sources already found. Requests are addressed in the order they are received.
