Standards

Public Libraries

The Colorado Public Library Standards provide both minimum standards for libraries in the Definition of a Public Library in Colorado and developmental standards in which a library can examine its current services and set goals for a better level of service for the local community.

School Libraries

Standards for the 21st-Century Learner offer vision for teaching and learning to both guide and beckon our profession as education leaders. They will both shape the library program and serve as a tool for library media specialists to use to shape the learning of students in the school.

Institutional Libraries

For hard copies of the standards, email Diane Walden, walden_d@cde.state.co.us.
