Welcome to the Estes Valley Library

Bringing over 100 years of library service to the Estes Valley and surrounding communities, the Estes Valley Library was begun in 1916 by the Estes Park Woman’s Club.  The first library was opened in the schoolhouse with 262 volumes.  Now with over 40,000 traditional collection items, and over 900,000 digital items, the library serves over 12,000 local residents, hundreds of seasonal residents, and many thousands of visitors to Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park.

Gather. Learn. Grow at the Estes Valley Library.
