FamilySearch Affiliate Library
The Longmont Public Library (LPL) is now an affiliate of the Salt Lake City Family History Library. That means that any records or images that are "locked" on the FamilySearch.org website and say they may only be viewed at a Family Search Center or at an Affiliate Library may be accessed at the LPL. To take advantage of this Affiliate status you may either use the LPL computer laboratory or take your own laptop computer and sign into FamilySearch.org using the LPL wi-fi network. Using either the LPL computer lab. or your own computer on the LPL wi-fi network, nothing more is needed. Use FamilySearch.org as you normally would and all those previously locked images will be available for you to view.

The Maria Rogers Oral History Program (MROHP) Collection contains more than 1,300 interviews about all aspects of life in Boulder County, from pioneers to agriculture, mining, businesses, the arts, education, daily life during various decades, cities and mountain towns in the county, government policies and city planning, open space programs, women, immigrant and ethnic populations, rock climbing and mountaineering, politics and political activists, the Rocky Flats Nuclear Weapons Plant, and much more. While the actual collection is archived at the Boulder Public Library's Carnegie Branch Library for Local History (1001 Arapahoe Avenue, Boulder, CO 80302), the audio, summaries, and transcripts of the interviews have been digitized and stored in this searchable digital archive, accessible via the internet. Check out this exciting site and see if any of your ancestors may have been interviewed or mentioned in an interview!
