To protect the health of our volunteers and shoppers, the Friends ask that masks be worn, per Larimer County mandate for public indoor settings.

Before heading out to the event, please check our website or social media updates for other possible COVID-related changes or updates. 

The Loveland Loves to Read committee has made the difficult decision to postpone the William Kent Krueger event, due to the ongoing COVID situation in our city and county. A new date is not available yet, but watch for updates.

Shop for gently used popular fiction, classics, cookbooks, local history, books for children and teens, gift items, and more! The Chapter Two Bookstore, located inside Loveland Public Library, is open Monday through Saturday, 9 AM - 5 PM.

Find popular fiction, classics, nonfiction in a variety of areas, and collectible items in our online bookstore. Shop and pay online, pick up purchases in the Chapter Two Bookstore. 


Loveland Public Library's budget is facing cuts at the same time as the Friends' capacity to provide funding has been curtailed due to the cancellation of our large book sales in 2020, as well as in April 2021.

Thanks to your generous donations, our Sorting Place at 1010 W. 10th Street is nearly full!

Unfortunately, we are not able to accommodate walk-in donations at this time. We ask you to save those donations until after our October book sale, when we will once again have space available, and volunteers on hand.

The drop-off bins in front of the building are open any time for smaller donations of books in good condition.
