Letter From The CEO:

Hello Everyone,


I want to start by saying a heartfelt thank you to all of you who have been patient and kind with us as we navigate this public health crisis. We are happy to be able to serve you in whatever ways we can, and appreciate your humor and good cheer as we’ve slowly reopened most of our services.


We hope that the summer schedule we’ve established will carry us through the next couple months. We have curbside hours as well as in-person browsing or computer hours 6 days a week. We’re here to help however we can, so call us to schedule an appointment, swing by the back door for curbside delivery, or check out all our online options for books, movies, and more.


We’re happy to announce that Storytime returns, though it may look a little different than it has in the past. Registration is required, and we’ll be working with small groups outside on the library lawn, so call us to register and bring a blanket for your family. All the other rules about wearing masks and social distancing still apply. We know that watching things on screens isn’t as beneficial to our littlest community members as reading and dancing with others in person, so we’ve worked with the County’s health department to make Storytime happen.


We’re also excited to announce that Northern Colorado Credit Union has partnered with us to share a workshop on budgeting toward the end of the month. This was originally scheduled to be an in-person class in April, but they’ve been working hard to change over to an electronic format. Watch our Facebook page for registration details.


This may be our strangest summer ever, but we’re here to serve you even when things are weird. Happy July everyone!


Amie P.
