About the Library

The Summit County Library is a community hub which serves the residents and visitors of Summit County with three locations in Frisco, Silverthorne and Breckenridge, Colorado. We aim to provide services and resources that meet the needs of our users and as such, we are constantly adding to our programs and collections.

We offer a variety of materials, programs for all ages and a wide range of digital resources, in order to give everyone in our community a welcoming environment and opportunities to search, connect and enjoy lifelong learning. The Library plays an essential part in developing early literacy skills and inspiring a love of reading. 
Our print collection includes: books, magazines, newspapers, CDbooks, DVDs, a large-print collection, and books in Spanish. We also have an extensive digital collection accessible 24/7 that include: eBooks, eAudiobooks, reserch databases, digital magazines, tv show/film streaming, animated books, online classes, music and more. Access our digital collection here

We have unique special collections including a Library of Things, early literacy reading kits, and a dyslexic collection.

We provide access to all of our materials through an online catalog that allows you to place materials on hold. Items will be sent to your home library from another Summit County Library or libraries throughout the state. Interlibrary loan is available for materials not carried by the Summit County Library system. Research may be accomplished by searching a variety of databases accessible with a library card. Databases include digital versions of newspapers, journals, books, videos, language learning, and other reference works.

We offer free programs and events for preschool and elementary age children, teens, and adults which you can view on our events calendar. All three libraries have meeting or study rooms available for public, private or non-profit organizations. For more information on reserving a room, please visit our Meeting Rooms page.


The Summit County Library partners with the Community & Senior Center’s Mountain Meals on Wheels program, who provide nutritious meals to home bound individuals throughout the county.
