An Estes Valley Library account allows for online management. Each member may renew items they have checked out, or place a request for items currently checked out by someone else. An account also provides access to digital books, videos and music. A library account may also be required to access some library subscription databases. Library card accounts are not needed to access library computers and wireless Internet (WiFi).
You may suggest that an item be purchased for the library collection. If we don’t choose to purchase this item we can often order it for you to borrow from another library. Suggest an item here.
