It holds all the information about Indians, Pioneers, Cowboys and more. There are books that tell stories about how the Wild West Cowboys traveled to Colorado, how the Pioneers survived, and how Indians out witted the their enemies.
Have you ever wondered about your family history, about where your great grandparents lived, and what their home, and school looked like? In the Genealogy Room, there are shelves stocked full of family history, in alphabetical order. The books are titled by the family’s last names, although not every family has a book. Genealogy books are mostly donated to the library, from people who have stumbled upon a book written from one of their ancestors. Although it's a little nerve racking finding your family’s history on a public library’s shelf, where any one can read about your family, don’t worry.

A room people might find interesting, is the Tenth Mountain Division Room. If you are interested in the army, or small groups that participated in World War II, you might enjoy learning about this group. As trained soldiers and expert skiers, they had an advantage to their enemies. On skis, they were quicker, and could out-smart the other groups.
