Pikes Peak Library District

USA

From a small reading room established 136 years ago, Pikes Peak Library District (PPLD) has evolved to meet the ever-changing needs of our sprawling and growing community.

Thanks to taxpayer funding, we reinvest in the community by providing residents with access to 16 facilities, three mobile library services, and a large online hub of resources and services that are inclusive and welcoming to all. We strive to make our physical and digital spaces safe and respectful for diverse voices, perspectives, and pursuits; to foster community dialogue and connections; and to help people achieve their goals and dreams in life.

As a national leader and the second largest library system in Colorado, our Library District serves a population of about 700,000 residents across 2,070 square miles of El Paso County. Thanks to an employee base of more than 400 staff and nearly 350 volunteers, PPLD continues to be recognized for its innovative and community-focused services and programs, its commitment to community collaboration, and excellent customer service.
