People in the Englewood, Colorado area have an excellent library system to use, as detailed on arapahoelibraries.org. The site is a full-service one, offering the ability for people in the Arapahoe Library District to find and reserve books, movies and music as well as conduct research, find a local library branch and conduct all sorts of associated business.
Arapahoelibraries.org is easy to use, with all the categories of material on display. Borrowers can search by all media, or by particular type or title of the item they are seeking. The most popular items in each category are displayed, and a short synopsis of the item can be seen by hovering over the image. Araphahoelibraries uses a shopping cart system similar to an e-commerce site, and requires the creation of an account in order to borrow anything. Items in the cart are held at a designated library branch for pickup, and are not released until the borrower displays their library card.
In keeping with modern usage, araphahoelibraries.org also offers a range of materials for download. The selection includes audiobooks, eBooks and music. There is a limit of three items per week per account. Songs downloaded through arapahoelibraries.org are free and may be kept on the user’s playback device indefinitely. EBooks require the download of specialized software depending on the device used, and are deleted automatically after the borrowing period ends. Movies obtained through the district website are in DVD format and must be picked up and returned at any library branch.
