Learn About this Region's Culture and Natural History

Loyd Files Research Library


We offer life-long learners of all ages access to primary sources of information about the region’s cultural and natural history. The Loyd Files Research Library collects photographs, one-of-a-kind manuscripts, maps, city directories, high school annuals and rare books. We offer onsite access to the Mesa County Genealogy Society’s library of over 3,000 books, and materials collected by the Mesa County Historical Society and the Quahada Chapter of the Colorado Archaeological Society.

Our friendly library staff offers you assistance. Onsite research is free to the general public, while telephone, email and written requests normally involve paid research. Collections are for in-house use only, with Xeroxing, scanning, cassette tape and photographic reproduction available for a charge. Referrals to other agencies and information sources are provided with a smile!

The Loyd Files Research Library coordinates the Mesa County Oral History Project, one of the largest of its type in the state.
