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 soon-to-be super-efficient, passive solar building that burns no fossil fuels (the design is complete but we are still fundraising!)
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.
Happy Thanksgiving and Harvest Feast to all! Find out more about this festival’s history and origins here.
At the Annual Membership Meeting, new board members were elected and an open house was held at the Clausen Cabin. We are seeking volunteers to staff hours and help organize the books at the cabin—more information coming soon!
