Book Stops around the county

Book Stop at the Rifle Park & Ride

Commuters around Garfield County have been grabbing books from the library's Book Stops at four locations: the Rifle Park & Ride, the main street stop in New Castle, the 27th Street station in Glenwood Springs, and the Carbondale Park and Ride. Volunteers and staff keep these Book Stops stocked with gently used, donated books that we are happy to provide to anyone in need of a good read. Stop by and grab a book without having to worry about overdue fines! All books at the stops are free for anyone to take and enjoy.

Learn more about the Book Stops from Aspen Public Radio.


Many thanks to the following organizations for their help in this project!
