About meWe are volunteers and members of the JTEL board of directors.

About my libraryThe John Trigg Ester Library is a small membership library in Ester, Alaska. We have about 9,600 volumes (we haven't catalogued them all yet). We're raising funds to construct a new building, so we can move the books off our overly-crammed shelves and put them in a nice big spacious library where we can hang out and read 'em all!

We have two main facilities on Main Street: a rented room in the middle of downtown Ester (hours are 9 to 9 daily), and a log cabin across the street (Hours there are Saturdays from 2 to 5 pm.). The log building into which we've been expanding, the Ansgar & Ida Clausen Cabin, houses the Ruth Jasper Children's Room, our cookbook and music book collections, our gardening and biodiversity books, our seed library, and soon our Alaska, circumpolar, and Ester collections. The Clausen Cabin has a couple of storage sheds and a garden associated with it also.

On our property on Village Road we have begun the first stage of our new building, the thermal storage tank that is Phase I of our eventual Passive House structure. Farther down the street, we have a toolshed/composting outhouse and the Ida Lane Clausen Gazebo, an 8-sided structure used for parties, a quiet reading nook, music practice, and as a staging area for Readers on the Run. Surrounding the gazebo and shed are perennial gardens. The motto on the stoop of the gazebo is from Erasmus: "When I have a little money, I buy books, and if there is any left over, I buy food."
