Letter From The CEO:

A quick word about masks—we are required to abide by mandates issued by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment and the Larimer County Department of Health and Environment. In order to keep the library open, we need to follow any applicable mask mandates. Please abide by any mask requirements so that we don’t have to return to curbside-only operations.


It’s just about time to plant your gardens, and our Seed Library has a fresh infusion of seeds! Feel free to browse and take whatever you think you will plant. Remember to save your seeds to bring back to the library in the fall!


If you haven’t found it yet, check out our new subscription to Overdrive, which includes over 27,000 e-books, e-audiobooks, and e-magazines. You can access these through any internet browser or through the Libby app available for any device.


Happy Spring to all of you!


Amie P.

Library CEO

Book Club For Kids

Hey kids in grades 3-6!! Sign up for Miss Christy's book club, the Big Head Book Club!


You will be reading any "Who Was..." biography of your choice. These books are lovingly called Big Head Books from the caricature on the cover. After you have read the book, join us on Zoom to discuss the questions about the book Miss Christy sent when you signed up.


A great way to learn more about some interesting people from history and share what you know with friends online!


The Last Meeting Will Be April 29th at 4pm


Call, sign-up at the library, or email Miss Christy to register! cmh.bcld@gmail.com

House Of Neighborly Service

It's spring! That means spring cleaning!


Do you have some extra non-expired foods hanging out in the pantry? Bring it by the library and drop it gently into the House of Neighborly Service (HNS) bin. It feels good to give!
