Old Rock Community Library
The Crested Butte Branch Library of Gunnison County Public Library is located in the renovated Old Rock Schoolhouse. The Old Rock School building had been standing vacant, and unused for a number of years when, in 1989, a group of concerned citizens and businesses formed the Committee to Restore the Rock School.

As a result of their efforts $350,000 in private and public funds were raised to renovate the Old Rock for use as a library. On September 21, 1993, Governor Roy Romer dedicated the Old Rock Community Library, 110 years after the Old Rock was built.
