At the reference desk, we are asked a wide range of interesting questions, some involving the law.
- How old do I need to be to legally ride a moped?

Librarians can not give legal advice or counsel, but we can refer you to resources readily available to you.
The library's online legal resources and forms are immensely helpful. You can browse the Colorado Revised Statutes and even search for specific terms. You can find legal forms including leases, wills, affidavits, and much more. Whether you need help finding a lawyer, settling a landlord dispute or answering questions about citizenship and immigration, the library has resources to help you get started.
