First News Summer 2007

Book Smarts

   The Book Nook was opened by the Friends of the La Veta Library in July of 2005 with a threefold mission. First, they needed an outlet for the hundreds of books donated to the La Veta Regional Library each year. Many of those books were added to the Library collection but others were simply stored in garages around town until the "Friends" three annual outdoor book sales each the summer. Secondly, the store provides a service to the community by offering a low-cost source for good books; and third, as a source of revenue for the La Veta Library.

   Through the cooperation of many townspeople and a loyal group of volunteers, they found a convenient retail space and since all employees are volunteers, expenses are kept to a minimum. The inventory of books is constantly replaced by more donations as well as culls from the library. Each year, books are donated to social services, the prisons, the veterans home, and various other groups. Currently, their customer base comes from neighboring communities such as Trinidad, Aguilar, Pueblo, Colorado City, and others visiting the La Veta area. Besides regular books, the Nook has a section of collectible books such as coffee table books, first editions and other collectibles that have become popular. Drop by the next time you're in town and browse their wonderful collection at 106 E. Francisco Street. Friendly staff will be glad to help you find whatever you're looking for. In addition to fiction, both hardback and paperback, there are sections of history, biography, travel, cook books, hobbies, westerns, health, children's books, classics, poetry, large print, religion, business and animals. Also included are videos, audio books and some CDs. Whether it is a paperback to enjoy on a trip, or a coffee table book to give as a hostess present, they've got it!
