Although the Library building is temporarily closed as we take coronavirus precautions, many Book-a-Librarian services remain available remotely. We encourage you to sign up for any of these services. Experts are available to help one-on-one:

Learn about Digital Collections

“Stay-at-home” doesn’t mean you can’t “stay inspired” with books, audio, movies, music, magazines and TV shows to keep you reading, learning, and relaxing. We’re here 7 days a week to answer your questions about Digital Collections (over 600,000 items for all ages) and how to access them on your device. Call us at 970-586-8116, email us at answers@estesvalleylibrary.org, or look for the “Chat with a Librarian” button in the upper-left corner of this page, available during regular hours.

College Planning

Schedule a one-on-one telephone session with Kaye Orten, a retired administrator in higher education.  Orten has served as Vice Chancellor for Student Financial Services at the University of Colorado and has vast experience working within the college admissions process.  In these one hour sessions you may ask questions, learn about college admissions, and get the details you and your family need to get your Teen to college.
