Advocating for our libraries since 1939!

About Us

Who Are We?

We are library lovers and community volunteers who have fun donating our time to help Poudre River Public Library District.

What Do We Do?

We raise money for the libraries by selling used books at our four big book sales and at our Harmony Shop and our Old Town Library Nook all year long.

Our Purpose:

  • To raise money to enhance and support the resources of the Poudre River Public Library District
  • To provide volunteer opportunities in support of the Library
  • To advocate for the Poudre River Public Library District
  • To sponsor programs to promote use and enjoyment of the Library
  • To encourage literacy within the community
