Volunteering at the Estes Valley Library

Volunteer Spotlight:  Roger Levy

This month, we are pleased to introduce you to Roger Levy, one of our wonderful volunteers who shelves library materials. Roger gifts us every week with his ready smile and good-natured service.

Roger was born in Indiana. His family moved around in his early years, eventually returning to Indiana where Roger went to High School. He earned a PhD in genetics from the University of Illinois and later worked in corn breeding at Beck’s Hybrids.

Roger’s family started vacationing in Estes Park when Roger was 12. It is no surprise that he developed a love of exploring the mountains.  Roger and his wife Susan bought land near Estes Park in 1978 and retired permanently to the area 5 years ago. They have 3 children and 8 grandchildren, with another grandchild on the way.

Like so many of our locals, Roger is well traveled, having visited several countries, some of them many times over. His favorite place is Switzerland and his favorite mountain: The Matterhorn!

Roger says that he loves libraries and enjoys shelving books because he has the opportunity to see new books and ends up reading many of them. He also enjoys working with other staff and volunteers. The feeling is mutual, Roger. Thank you for all you bring to the Library!
