Colorado’s statewide loan library is a tremendous resource for children receiving Part C early intervention services. Through the loan library, assistive technology items can be trialed to determine if they are the best fit for a child and their family. Early intervention AT consultants can provide access to the loan library for EI providers within their CCB program.
We do ask borrowers to complete a number of surveys in the course of your loan from the loan library. We recognize this adds additional time however, it is necessary for us to collect this data in order to receive funds to continue to operate the loan library.
To view a list of all available loan library items, go to our online Alexandria Loan Library.
The Alexandria Loan Library catalog details all the inventory currently available in the Loan Library. Alexandria is searchable by anyone (teachers, caregivers, family members, related service professionals). It is a great resource of information including descriptions and features of devices, purchase price, and a picture of the item(s). AT service providers can direct AT stakeholders/clientele/consumers to Alexandria in order to preview potential AT solutions. All requests for equipment must come from the designated Early Intervention AT Consultant.
PLEASE NOTE: The Colorado Library Consortium courier service is not affiliated with SWAAAC. SWAAAC is merely a patron of the courier service, so in no way manages or administrates it. While the Central SWAAAC Office pays an annual fee so that the SWAAAC AT Library may be a pick-up/drop-off point, we do not have control over any of the other courier patrons (i.e. your local public or school library). Your local public library or school library may allow you to send and receive items through their courier stop, on their courier service bill, as a favor to your AT team. Alternatively, you may look into becoming a courier patron and pay an annual fee to establish your office as a drop-off/pick-up point.Contact the Colorado Library Consortium directly if you have questions about the courier service, or if you would like to add a site. They should be able to help you and can be reached at 303-422-1150, 888-206-2695 or email@example.com.
