Document Delivery

Patrons may phone, fax or mail requests for specific magazine articles, stock quotations, obituaries, classified ads, etc. to the Rawlings Library. For a small fee, librarians will locate the requested material, photocopy it, and see that it is delivered by one of three methods: fax ($1.00), mail ($1.00 for Pueblo County residents & $3.00 for non-County residents), or customer pickup ($1.00). The charge for long distance fax is $6.00. For articles over 10 pages there will be an additional 10 cents per page.
