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.

Colorado Gives Day

From Summer Reading Programs that allow children and teens to continue learning through the summer to Adult Literacy programs that allow community members to reach their goals, Pikes Peak Library District changes lives in the community. This is story is a great example.

"Paige entered PPLD's Adult Literacy GED program at the beginning of the fall 2014 term. I immediately recognized her to be an excellent student: intelligent, hardworking, and ambitious. She was raising a 1 1/2 year old son and still managed to attend almost all classes and keep up with her homework and studying. Soon after the term ended she took and passed all four GED exams with high scores. She used two vouchers which were offered by the library program to help defray the cost of these exams.

"Today I went to the dentist and was surprised and happy to see her again. Paige had taken a 10-week class and was now working as a hygienist's assistant. She told me she is also enrolled at Pikes Peak Community College to achieve her ultimate goal of becoming a radiology technician.

"Paige expressed how grateful she is to the Adult Literacy's GED program. This was confirmation that even when students' lives get derailed for whatever reason they can get back on track and achieve their goals. Paige embodies the real value of PPLD's commitment to education and to the community it serves. "

Your support of Pikes Peak Library District through Colorado Gives Day will go towards programs that will empower people like Paige to reach their goals. Colorado Gives day takes place on December 8, but you can schedule your donation today at
