The Bud Werner Memorial Library shares their catalog with 22 other Colorado libraries on the western slope. This collaborative effort is called the Marmot Library Network. We are also a member of Prospector, a collection of 40 libraries on the front range, and we are a member of WorldCat, the largest library collection in the world.  By combining our collections we are able to offer over 400 million titles to the patrons of the Bud Werner Memorial Library.
