The John Trigg Ester Library

Welcome to the John Trigg Ester Library, a community membership library in Ester, Alaska. Since its founding back in 1999, the library has grown from a collection of Dumpster-dived books and a donated couch into a two-location facility with a children’s library and plans for a soon-to-be super-efficient, passive solar building that burns no fossil fuels (the design is complete but we are still fundraising!)

Mission Statement:

The John Trigg Ester Library is a home-grown community library that provides a welcoming and intellectually stimulating environment where local residents can meet and share ideas and information. The library strives to instill a love of reading and learning, to showcase Ester-area history and culture, and to provide resources that enrich the whole community.
