Volunteering at the Estes Valley Library

Volunteers are valuable partners in the Library’s Mission to bring people, ideas and opportunities together for our community.  The library proudly hosts one of the most well-established and successful volunteer programs in the Estes Valley. Library volunteers contribute more than 8,000 hours of valuable service annually.  Working under the supervision of staff, volunteers can be found in all departments of the library. Some volunteers work in regular positions and others give their time to special programs or short-term projects.

Available volunteer postings are announced here. If there are no current openings, applications will be kept on file for a year from the date of the application.  For more information e-mail: or call: 970 586 8116 x838.

Volunteer Spotlight

Phoebe Payne

Meet the Library’s youngest, and surely the cutest, volunteer: Phoebe Payne. Phoebe helps her mom Carissa deliver books and materials to the homebound as part of the Library’s Program & Outreach House Calls Program. 

Phoebe was born 4 years ago in Anchorage, Alaska, and like any Alaska girl, she enjoys the outdoors. When asked what she likes most about living in Estes Park, she said it’s her preschool at the YMCA of the Rockies. Her favorite colors are purple and pink, and she’d like to be a princess when she grows up. 

Phoebe enjoys coming to the Library and picking out books for her little brother Martin, to whom she often reads aloud. She enjoys helping deliver books to those that can’t get to the Library and she especially likes petting the dogs and cats at the homes where she visits. 

Thank you Phoebe! We are sure glad to have you on the team!
