Letter From The CEO:

Hello All,


Welcome to February. Two things to keep in mind as you use the library this month:


1. Our Food for Thoughts discussion topic is Water, and we’ll have a guest from Northern Colorado Water joining us to provide expertise. We only have breakfast this month, and the discussion is nearly full—if you want to sign up, call us right away.


2. For those of you taking care of younger kids, we have a new Storytime on Wednesday afternoons at 4:00. It’s perfect for bringing all the kids after school. We still have our morning Storytimes on Wednesday and Fridays, and registration is not required for any of them.


We hope you’ll continue to enjoy these long winter evenings curled up with a good book or a good movie. Let us know if there’s anything we can help you find!


Amie P.


Library CEO

Take up Space: Teen/Tween art and mindfulness program

Starting in 2022, Take up Space will start meeting on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of the Month at 4:30PM. February's dates are the 3rd and 17th!


Each meeting, there will be an optional journal prompt and optional art activity. They are optional so the teens/tweens can have more freedom with what they create.
