Village Catalog

The Library is proud to partner with our local schools to create a Village Catalog.

Village Catalog Partners:

  • Estes Park School District 
  • Eagle Rock School Libraries

Parking

In the busy summer season, downtown Estes Park utilizes a paid parking system. Learn more here.

From May 26 – October 22, the Library lot paid parking hours begin at 10 AM and end at 5 PM. In other words, parking is free for vehicles in the Library lot before 10 AM and after 5 PM.

Between 10 AM – 5 PM, parking lot users have the following options:

  • Sign up for our Park Like A Local program! We’ll take care of registering your vehicle for a “Local Permit” with the Town of Estes Park. This permit grants you two hours of free parking anywhere in the lot.
  • There are 7 free “Library Reserved” 2-hour parking spots, first come first served. Please make use of these during your visit!
  • If those spots are occupied, select another spot and use the kiosks or ParkMobile app to pay $2/hour to park.

More information about paid parking can be found on the Town of Estes Park’s website.

If you prefer to not pay for parking, check out the free parking garage just south of the Estes Park Visitor Center. You can use the free shuttles and trolley to access downtown, or walk along the Riverwalk and cross the street at Brownfields on Elkhorn.

Thank you for visiting the Estes Valley Library!
