La Veta Library Mission Statement

It is the La Veta Public Library District’s mission to assemble and organize services, collections of materials, and other resources to meet the information needs and interests of the people it serves and to provide free access to diverse ideas in a variety of formats.

La Veta Library History
  • June 5. 1974 the Library opened as guests of La Veta’s Jail House.  The running joke was we had the best read prisoners- as the old jail cell was the book storage area.
  • First book purchased by the Library was “The La Veta Posse” by Eugene Vories in September 1974.
  • September 1975 the library opened its doors at its current address 310 S. Main St.
  • The Library was begun through the vision, work and donations of the community it serves.  It has evolved over the years with major renovation in 1978, 1986, and 2006.  It still exists because of the steadfast support of our local community.
