Though the Librarys building may not be open yet, theres an exciting menu of services available. Were inspired by our great local restaurants, who have been creatively bringing delicious curbside cuisine to our community. Here are 10 items now on the Library Menu:

Curbside pick-up service began this week, and its been popular! You can place holds in the Library catalog. We pull your items, and well have em ready at your scheduled pick-up time, right by the Librarys front steps.

Cliffhanger Used Books joined many downtown retailers in re-opening their doors this past week. You can again shop on-site, with all precautions in place, while supporting the Library Friends & Foundation in the process.

Digital Collections were expanding in popularity even before the closure. Weve added lots of new digital books and movies, including more than ever for kids and teens. Whatever your interest, theres a download for that!

7-Day-a-week Reference Desk: Got questions? Contact us with whats on your mind, whether its about a Library service, or locating the right website for an application, or a local service. Call, email, or look for the new online chat button at estesvalleylibrary.org.
