Welcome:

Letter From The CEO:

Happy New Year from the Berthoud Library!


We’re working on maximizing every square inch of space in our building, and that means you’ll see some interior renovations happening soon. While we will do our best to keep disruptions as minimal as possible, we will need to temporarily close our building or serve you through curbside only in the near future. As soon as contractors and building permits are in place we’ll be rolling, so stay tuned for an updated library interior.


We hope you all stay cozy and well-read during these cold winter months. Come see us if you need helping finding something new to read or watch.


Amie P.

Library CEO

Partnering with A Little Help

COMING IN 2023! The Berthoud Community Library and A Little Help are partnering on a library delivery program in Berthoud.


If you live in Berthoud, are unable to get out in the community, and are interested in having library materials delivered to your home, contact the Berthoud Community Library at berthoudcommunitylibrary@gmail.com or 970-532-2757 to be added to our interest list. We will follow-up with additional details in late January.
