Our year-end Fundraising Campaign has just two weeks to go. The funds we raise this month will fuel our ongoing efforts to establish a Headwaters to Plains Network – a network of library/learning centers focused on people and the land. Each library spans the urban/rural divide, and both are designed to encourage discovery, quiet thought, creative pursuits, and active community involvement.
This past spring we hosted our first Land Library programs in Denver’s Globeville neighborhood. Thanks to volunteers, Globeville’s Library Room has become an inspiring space for classes and book clubs. We’ve already hosted several meetings & visits from groups such as Outdoor Afro and the Rocky Mountain Society of Botanical Artists.
Our adjacent warehouse/sorting room regularly gathers a busy hive of volunteers who are getting over 40,000 books ready for the shelves at Globeville, and at Buffalo Peaks Ranch.
Our past summer at Buffalo Peaks Ranch was our best season yet. We had a very successful fifth summer of Ranch programs, including ten artists & writers workshops, natural history field classes, a Star Night, and our annual Ranch Book Club. We can’t wait for even more progress in 2020. Stay tuned for our Summer Ranch Schedule!

For more on the Rocky Mountain Land Library, we hope you enjoy this 3-minute video. In 2019, Colorado Preservation Inc awarded the Land Library their Preservation Edge Award, recognizing a historic preservation project that utilizes unique & creative means (for the ongoing renovation of South Park’s Buffalo Peaks Ranch). CPI also produced this short film, filmed at Denver’s Globeville branch, with footage of the ranch. You’ll also meet a few of the people behind the Rocky Mountain Land Library!

We find our place in the world through land and stories, and the Rocky Mountain Land Library unites our passion for both.” — Mark Fiege, author of The Republic of Nature: An Environmental History of the United States
