Learn about this region’s culture and natural history
We offer life-long learners of all ages access to primary sources of information about the region’s cultural and natural history. The Loyd Files Research Library collects photographs, one-of-a-kind manuscripts, maps, city directories, high school annuals and rare books. We offer onsite access to the Mesa County Genealogy Society’s library of over 3,000 books, and materials collected by the Mesa County Historical Society and the Quahada Chapter of the Colorado Archaeological Society.
Our friendly library staff offer you assistance. Onsite research is free to the general public, while fees may apply to large scale projects or commercial requests, contact the library staff for more information. Collections are for in-house use only, with scanning, and photographic reproduction available for a charge.
