Repository description (extant): Special Collections of the Pikes Peak Library District, housed in the historic 1905 Carnegie Library, consists of regional history and genealogy collections of interest to the general public and specialized researchers. The regional history collection preserves and provides access to published and unpublished documentary resources (e.g. books, pamphlets, maps, photographs, family papers, business records, audio and video recordings) important to the study of the history and cultural heritage of the Pikes Peak region. The genealogy collection includes published resources valuable for the study of family history. The collection encompasses the continental United States from the colonial period to the present day, as well as limited resources for England, Scotland, Ireland, Germany and other European countries.
The Pikes Peak Library District is a nationally recognized system of public libraries serving El Paso County, Colorado. With thirteen facilities, online resources and mobile library services, PPLD strives to reach all members of the community, providing free and equitable access to information and an avenue for personal and community enrichment. The mission of the Pikes Peak Library District is to seek, engage, and transform lives through library services and resources that enrich individual lives and build community.
