CIPA ELF Needs Drivers!

CIPA ELF Needs Drivers!

Do you live near Leadville, Lamar, Norwood, or Pueblo? And do you attend the monthly CIPA meetings in Denver? And would you be interested in helping deliver book donations to local libraries?

The CIPA Education and Literacy Foundation donates tens of thousands of dollars’ worth of books to libraries, hospitals, women’s shelters, and other organizations across the state of Colorado each year. We’ve donated more than 2,500 books so far in 2019, but have another 700 ready to deliver to the following locations:

  • Lake County Public Library (Leadville)
  • Combined Community Library (Ordway) and Lamar Public Library (Lamar)
  • Ignacio Community Library (Ignacio)
  • Norwood Public Library (Norwood)
  • Pueblo City-County Library (Pueblo) and Carnegie Library (Trinidad)

The largest of these deliveries will be roughly 250 pounds of books, so while a truck won’t be necessary, having a hand cart may be useful.

Volunteer drivers would receive the books at an upcoming CIPA meeting and provided with addresses and contact information for their libraries, and would be asked to arrange delivery dates/times that would work well for the recipients. Drivers would also be asked to take pictures of the deliveries (to be used for CIPA ELF marketing purposes). To volunteer or learn more information, please contact Dan Pratt at, or check in with Dan or with Mike Daniels at your next CIPA meeting.
