Letter From The CEO:

Hello everyone,


It’s August, which means our Summer Learning Program is coming to an end. You have until Saturday, August 7 to claim your prizes or get your drawing tickets, whether you’re a kid, a teen, or an adult. We’ll draw the winners for our prizes the week of August 9, so stay tuned!


We’ll be out and about this month. We’ll be at Back to School Night at Berthoud Elementary, Ivy Stockwell, and Turner Middle, at the Farmers Market in Fickel Park, and even attending block parties in a couple of different Berthoud neighborhoods. Stop by to get your library card or just say hi. If you’re having a party in your own neighborhood and want us to come, let us know.


A reminder for our storytime families, we’ll take a short break for the first two weeks of August. Storytime will resume the week of August 16.


Stay cool everyone!

Amie P.
