Naropa University Libraries Services Update - Until further notice:

Library staff are readily available to assist you online with library services! 

Monday – Friday, 8 am5 pm 


Libraries at Arapahoe Campus, Paramita Campus, and Nalanda Campus remain physically closed.

Please read the Naropa_Online_Resources.pdf document to learn about accessing online library resources on our website. Please contact library@naropa.edu with any questions about accessing online library resources.

We are offering limited checkouts of physical library materials. Contact library@naropa.edu with any questions or requests.
See our "Checking out library materials" section of our homepage for more details.

We are accepting library materials you wish to return. Please return items to the 2130 Arapahoe campus library book-drop, outside the Allen Ginsberg Library. Due to safer-at-home restrictions and Coronavirus-related safety protocols, returned items are currently being checked in once a week; this means there will be a bit of a delay getting your returned items checked in. Do not return library materials if you do not feel safe doing so. You may email library@naropa.edu to request a due date extension as needed.

Checked out university library materials have been granted a longer check-out period extending until August 31st. This should be reflected in accounts currently but if you find that your items were not automatically extended with our system-wide update, just get in touch!

If you receive an overdue notice, email library@naropa.edu to request an extension on your check-out period. We will renew and forgive associated fines.

Interlibrary loan (ILL) items have varying due dates. Please contact us if you receive an item due notification and you would like us to request a renewal from the lending library.
