Current facilities

The John Trigg Ester Library has several pieces of property and facilities, creating a small library campus within the village of Ester.

The main collection is located at 3618 Main Street in the lower level of the red-and-white barnish building next to the log castle (you’ll see what we mean when you get to the village square). The library is open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., every day of the week. The Clausen Cabin, just across the street at 3629 Main Street is currently open 2-5 p.m. on Saturdays and for special programs or events. The Clausen Cabin features Alaskana, women’s studies, cooking, gardening and a children’s collection with more books being added to the shelves every week.

Additionally the library owns the Ida Laine Gazebo and associated outhouse at 504 Village Road, across from the Ester Post Office; and the Passive House library, is under construction at 488 Village Road.

These are the responsibility of the Facilities Committee to keep in good working order as welcoming and functional, useful facilities for our members to use.
