The Community

Located in Eaton, Colorado, the Eaton Public Library has grown from a small brick library constructed in 1911 to a 12,000 square foot, newly remodeled and updated modern library. Our new Makerspace Lab has great potential for our forward thinking staff in this small town of 5,000 residents.  Staff and patrons love the historical feel of our library which was named after Benjamin Eaton, a former governor and credited with bringing irrigation to Weld County.  As part of High Plains Library District, we enjoy solid funding to pay for our 10 budgeted positions, the extensive programs and up-to-date collections we offer.  Our library is located 5 miles north of Greeley, home to the University of Northern Colorado. Fort Collins, home to Colorado State University and a convenient gateway to enjoying the Rocky Mountains is only a 25 mile drive on uncrowded roads.  We are near bike trails, the Pawnee Grassland, numerous public parks, and recreational opportunities.
