Estes Valley Library offers plenty of good reads. We love working with the library on book signings and events that help support the community. Always check our event page for any author signings that may be hosted with Estes Valley Library. The Friends of the Library operates the Cliffhanger Book Shop, located next to the Post Office. If we don’t have an older title in stock, you might want to check with Cliffhanger. They offer a variety of used books.
