Angel Fire Community Library was started in 1978 in a back room of the Angel Fire Country Club by seven devoted ladies. Over the next few years, in order to get our own library building built, determined community members did extensive planning and fund-raising. Angel Fire Resort donated the land to build the library and Shuter Construction built the library at cost. Countless volunteers donated time, energy and money into getting the new library up and running. In July 2002, the brand new 3,000 square foot Shuter Library opened to the public.
Shuter Library Today
Today, Shuter Library is an independent, incorporated and registered 501(c)(3) organization. Shuter Library is a private library that operates as a public library, meaning it is not funded through municipal taxes but provides free services to the community. Instead, most of our revenues come from donations, grants and volunteer fund-raising efforts.
Shuter Library offers many services to the Village of Angel Fire and the Moreno Valley. Our collection consists of over 10,000 print and audio books and four public use computers. Our computers and Wi-Fi services are the fastest available locally. We offer affordable photocopying, as well as printing from our computers. We also have gently used books and audio CDs for sale. For children, we host kids' game nights and our popular annual summer reading program. We have instituted many new programs, including downloads of digital eBooks and audio books, Kindle Device lending program, and classes to familiarize community members with digital readers. Shuter Library also hosts a monthly book club.
Shuter Library of Angel Fire is the wonderful success it is today thanks to the bigheartedness of our loyal patrons, the thousands of hours of fund-raising and volunteer efforts, and the generosity of community and local merchants. We look forward to seeing you soon in our great little library!
