Services for Adults

The Adult Services section works hard to meet the needs of people from 18 years to senior citizens. Librarians and staff select the "best of the best' in books, and DVDs in English and Spanish for members of the community. We provide the newest DVD releases available anywhere, computers and WiFi for public use and, of course, great books and magazines in English and Spanish. Adult Services also organizes cultural events and outings as part of the library's services.

The 2020 Scholarship Application is open!

Deadline extended to Thursday, May 28, 2020

Thank you for your interest in the City of Commerce Scholarship Program. The Commerce City Council dedicates itself to promote education in the community and is happy to help make a college education more available to you. Studies indicate that a college education helps adults to earn more. According to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics,earnings for both males and females increase with education. Among people age 25 years and older, median weekly earnings generally increase with greater levels of educational attainment. In 2016, those with less than a high school diploma had the lowest median weekly earnings,at $504. Earnings were highest for people with at least a bachelor's degree--$1,156 for those with a bachelor's degree, $1,380 for those with a master's degree, $1,745 for those with a professional degree,and $1,664 for those with a doctoral degree.

Volunteers Needed

Become a trained Veteran Resource Coach or a Veteran Outreach Specialist

The Veterans Resource Center is looking for individuals who have a passion for giving back to those who have protected our freedom from World War II to present day.

We need dedicated individuals who can assist veterans and their families by providing them the resources and information, military or non-military related.   

We also need dedicated individuals who are willing to outreach to the community and talk about what the Veterans Resource Center provides.

Many veterans do not know that benefits have changed since they were discharged so eligibility requirements are different.  There are also new benefits that have come out since some vets were discharged that they may now quality for. We have a network of resources, that well-deserved veterans do not know about and we need dedicated people to help spread the word.
