Pine River Library

“Lots of libraries are there for the community, but here in Bayfield, the community built the library,” said Amy Dodson, (former) director of the Pine River Library (PRL), CO. The library was selected as LJ’s (Library Journal) Best Small Library in America, 2014. The winning library received a $20,000 cash prize from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The library is located in the heart of the expanded business district on the north side of Highway 160. The newly-expanded 12,000 square foot building is home to almost 40,000 items including books, audiobooks, public access computers, tablets, e-readers and more. The Library includes more than 45 public computers, two smaller meeting rooms, a children's imagination room, comfortable chairs for reading, and a large selection of books, magazines, audio and video materials, online databases, and downloadable media including audio, video, music, and e-books. A 17,000 square-foot Community Garden serves the community by providing space for garden beds, teaching classes and serving the food needs of the community. The current staff of 13 employees eagerly serves our community of over 8,500.
