Volunteering at the Estes Valley Library
Volunteers are valuable partners in the Library’s Mission to bring people, ideas and opportunities together for our community. The library proudly hosts one of the most well-established and successful volunteer programs in the Estes Valley. Library volunteers contribute more than 5,000 hours of valuable service annually.
Working under the supervision of staff, volunteers can be found in all departments of the library. Some volunteers work in regular positions and others give their time to special programs or short-term projects.
Available volunteer postings are announced here. If there are no current openings, applications will be kept on file for a year from the date of the application.

This month, we’d like to spotlight Stan Havlick who has been volunteering at the library for about 10 years. Stan and his wife Margaret have lived in Estes Park since 2001 and have 4 children and 6 grandchildren.
Stan is a graduate of Northern Michigan University and one of the most well-traveled people you could ever meet. Did you know he was the first person to bicycle across 6 continents? He also climbs, canoes and skis… and takes part in triathlons (check out his website at: wwwgoforitadventures.com).
When Stan isn’t traveling (or canoeing, or climbing or skiing!), he has been busy founding and directing several groups and organizations which include, but are not limited to, the Cherry Creek Sneak Benefit Run, the Eldorado Springs Run For the Cure and the Colorado Cancer Foundation. He is also an inductee in the Colorado Special Olympics Hall of Fame and a volunteer ranger at Rocky Mountain National Park.
Stan has been volunteering at the Estes Valley Library for about 10 years, taking part in the Library’s “Our Wonderful World” adventure series. In 2015 he was named the Library’s Volunteer of the Year. We feel very lucky to have Stan as part of our volunteer team and as part of our community.
