Borrowing a Resource Kit from the Colorado State Library

To borrow a kit, you will need to be enrolled in the CSL Resource Kit Borrowing Program.  Your “Kit account” is the same as your CSL Book Club account if you participate in that program.  If you already have a CSL Book Club user number and password, skip to step 4 below.

  1. Go to https://cslkits.cvlsites.org/enroll/
  2. Complete and submit the enrollment form.
  3. You will receive an email with a user number and password for your library within a short time.
  4. Go to our online resource catalog at https://csl.catalog.aspencat.info/
  5. Login into your  CSL account using the “Login” button at the top right of the screen.
  6. Use the Search bar, or browse for “Resource Kit”, to find the Kit you want to borrow.
  7. Place a Hold on the desired kit.
  8. The checkout period is 6 weeks.  If the kit is available, it will be sent to you the next business day via the Courier.  If it is checked out to another library, your hold will remain in place until the item is available or you cancel the hold.
  9. Please remember to submit feedback either on the paper form included on the clipboard in the kit or online.
