Tools for Business

Tools for Business is one resource Douglas County Libraries makes available that features local, state, and federal resources to start and grow businesses. Tools for Business contains a business start-up kit with all the forms to comply with government requirements, links to funding resources, green business practices, business tax incentives, employer resources and more.


All of our libraries have free public computing stations equipped with high-speed Internet access, as well as productivity software. Free wireless Internet access is also available to patrons with their own laptop computers.

Meeting Rooms

All library branches have at least one large meeting room available for public use. In addition, the regional libraries in Castle Rock, Highlands Ranch and Parker have small study rooms that can be reserved on short notice: these smaller rooms are perfect for meeting with clients and advisors.
