Friends of Cheyenne Mountain Library

For those of you still mourning the loss of real bookstores, the library has an added perk besides its free books to borrow. Donations brought in by our patrons are sold at the Friends of Cheyenne Mountain Library Book Store located just inside the quiet reading room. The library is wonderful but there are times you just want to own that book you take on vacation or underline for the book club. While you can’t count on finding a specific title, the serendipity of exploring for unexpected treasures has its own rewards and you can’t beat the price of a dollar paperback for the pool or plane ride.

Prices: $3 for hardbacks, $2 for large paperbacks, $1 for small paperbacks and 50 cents for magazines. DVDs and CDs are also sometimes available.

It’s a great place to shop for your reading pleasure!

We accept donations of gently used adult and children’s books.The proceeds go to support our children’s programs, buy craft supplies, and fund hospitality needs for our Senior programs and volunteers. The Cheyenne Friends have also donated funds to the Cheyenne expansion into our present location and other district building projects.

Winner 2015: The Gazette's Best of the Springs

Pikes Peak Library District was honored in two categories by The Gazette's Best of the Springs!

Expert Pick for Hands-Down Great Place for Kids
"On any given day of the week, parents can find a free educational event for their kids to attend at one of the many libraries of the Pikes Peak Library District. From newborns to teens, the district makes an effort to reach out to all kids and give them age-appropriate programming and resources to help them learn more. Programming is especially good in the summer months when the libraries bring music, crafts, animals, and movies for kids and parents to enjoy together."

Voter's Choice for Teen Hangout
"Teens can enjoy myriad activities, get help with reading, writing and math homework as well as learn how to use library resources for research and enjoyment. The district has organized a wide range of unique programs including workshops in electronics, gaming, tutoring and knitting."
