A Guide To Summertime At The Library “Summertime, and the living is easy. ” This weekend marks the traditional kickoff to that glorious season in Estes Park. And the library is here to make it a summer to remember. Here is a handy ‘summer-y summary’ to help you enjoy your library to the fullest: Summer Hours: for your convenience, the library is open an additional six hours each week this summer, opening at 9 a.m. Mondays through Saturdays. The earlier opening begins this Tuesday. You’ll find the 9 a.m. hour a pleasant and less-busy time to visit. Parking: Peak parking times are generally late mornings through mid-afternoon, and on festival days. Watch for signage in the library parking lot. Certain areas have time-restrictions that are enforced. We find the parking garage offers a nice alternative: free unlimited parking, matched with a pleasant Riverwalk stroll to and from the library. The Twig: Many patrons have their library materials routed to this convenient mini-branch at the Estes Valley Community Center. We deliver items there daily. You can always use the drive-up book returns at EVCC too. One-Stop Source for Summer Activities: Summer is packed with great library programs. See the full roster in our Programs & Services Guide, now available online and arriving soon in print form. Pick up a copy in the library or at locations around town. Summer Reading Program: We’ve made it easier than ever for all ages to log summer reading for great prizes. The Apollo 11 moon landing’s 50th anniversary inspires this summer’s space
