Convenient Services: Make Library engagement easier Estes Valley Library Convenient Services: Make Library engagement easier   |   print this page  

As summer visitors flock to the Estes Valley and roads get busier, it may be tempting to stay in and skip a trip to the library. We understand, and we’re here to help optimize your valuable time.  

We offer a variety of services that can make borrowing items easier and more convenient. This line-up of links can show you how to engage with the Estes Valley Library even when you’re short on time, not sure what you want to read, or can’t find a book in our collection.

Curbside Pickup

Traveling through and around town is tricky in the summer. Running your regular errands can take extra time, or maybe you’d just prefer to get on your way. Enter: our Curbside Pickup. It’s like curbside delivery from grocery stores, but with books, DVDs, blu rays, audiobooks, Library of Things items, and more. The best part? It’s free and simple to use.

The Twig

If downtown isn’t on your errand path, no problem. Try the Twig at the Rec Center. Located on the lower level, just to the right of the entrance, the Twig is “smaller than a branch” but still mighty. When reserving your items via the catalog, we’ll prompt you to choose a pickup location. Simply select “the Twig” and we’ll deliver your holds, then alert you when they’re ready and waiting.

Special Order

If you’re stumped about what to read or watch next, or you just don’t have time to browse our online catalog, try our Special Order service. It’s as easy as completing a short form with your preferences, then we’ll take it from there. We’ll pack a special order and let you know when it’s ready to pick up.

Interlibrary Loan

We’ll get it for you! If you can’t find a book in our collection, we can access libraries across the state of Colorado to borrow a copy. Once it arrives at the Library, we’ll alert you and you can check it out for three weeks.
