What is the Rocky Mountain Land Library?

The Rocky Mountain Land Library's simple mission is to encourage a greater awareness of the land and access to stewardship tools so that we may work together to preserve our land.

Its 20,000 + volume natural history library is especially focused on the land and communities of the Rocky Mountains. The Land Library is currently engaged in a site search to provide both the shelves and proper environment for a truly unique residential land-study center. While its search continues, the Rocky Mountain Land Library is involved in several outreach programs: a Kids & Educators Library in south metro Denver (established in partnership with Denver Water and the Thorne Ecological Institute), and the Rocky Mountain Land Series (in partnership with the Tattered Cover Book Store), an author series established in 2001.

Join Director Jeff Lee for a presentation on the story of the creation of the Rocky Mountain Land Library on Sunday, September 18 at 2:00 p.m. at the Schlessman Branch. Hear how two Denver booksellers visited the library of William Gladstone, former Prime Minister of Great Britain and came home with a dream of creating a residential library celebrating the mountains and plains of the American West. How did they get from dream to reality? Join us and find out!
