We are accepting library materials you wish to return. Returning library materials:

Please place all library items you wish to return into library book drops located on each campus. We will not accept items any other way.  

  • Allen Ginsberg Library book drop is located just outside main doors to library building 
  • Paramita Library book drop is located just to the left when entering Paramita through the front, south-facing doors 
  • Due to Covid-related safety protocols, returned items are currently being checked in about 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. 

If you receive an overdue notice, email library@naropa.edu to request an extension on your check-out period.

 

 

Masks are required on campus, inside and out.

Respect 6 feet of physical distancing. Be kind.

CRITICAL CONSCIOUSNESS COLLECTION

This collection is housed in the Allen Ginsberg Library and was formerly located in the Center for Culture, Identity, & Social Justice on the Arapahoe campus. It reflects Naropa's commitment to social justice and exists in order to further the community's understanding of systems of oppression and privilege. Offering a diverse array of reading materials (on race, class, sexual orientation, gender, ethnicity, and more), this collection shifts the normative story by centering voices and perspectives that are often marginalized in society. As such, the collection is always expanding, and recommendations are welcome!
