Celebrating Library Love in 2021

On Friday, October 1 at 6 PM, we celebrate an essential group of people: the library lovers who are our donors and caring supporters. Join us for the annual meeting of the Estes Valley Library Friends & Foundation, open to current members, as well as new members who sign up in September.

Current members of the Library Friends & Foundation: click here to sign up for October 1. Not yet a current member? It’s easy to make your annual or recurring gift online through this link.

Library Friends & Foundation memberships provide a margin of excellence that enables the library to be a center of learning and creativity, a source of joy, and a champion of youth and early literacy. As part of this year’s Annual Meeting, we welcome Dr. Harley Rotbart, author of No Regrets Living: 7 Keys to a Life of Wonder and Contentment.

No Regrets Living is a proactive, 7-step plan to help us better appreciate what we have in our lives, and take greater pride in what we’ve done with our lives—without spending precious time and energy wishing things had turned out differently. The book leads us to see the world through a lens of appreciation for the magnificence around us, which in turn helps us accommodate those not-so-magnificent moments in our lives.

Woven into the timeless message of the book are especially timely observations on the COVID-19 pandemic from Dr. Rotbart’s expert perspective as an infectious diseases physician, including coping mechanisms and paths for going forward as individuals and as a society.

Once signed up, we’ll keep you posted on details regarding the location.
