Letter From The CEO:
Calling our young artists! To celebrate the completion of another school year and to kick off our Summer Learning Initiative, we’re having a library card design contest that will begin mid-month. Community members will get to vote for their favorite designs, and the winning design will be featured on a limited-edition run of library cards that will debut during National Library Card Signup Month in September. Kids and teens can pick up an entry form beginning May 15.
Does your favorite teacup or mug have a story? Bring it to the library at 2:00 on May 6 for a cup of tea, some refreshments, and a chance to share your cup’s story with others. This is a ladies-only tea for those 16 and older, and registration is required.
It’s baseball season, so watch the library’s social media for our next announcement of free Rockies tickets. Our tickets are limited, so don’t delay when you see us post.
Summer is right around the corner, so stay tuned for announcements about our annual Summer Learning Initiative. We’ll have events and the opportunity to win prizes all summer long. Enjoy the rest of the school year, and know we’re ready for all of you when school lets out for the summer.
We are fully open to the public! Come on in to see us 10am-6pm Monday through Friday, and 10am-4pm (closed from 12-1pm for lunch and cleaning) on Saturdays.
Curbside hours are constant every day, Monday through Saturday, from 10am until 5pm. Please email us at email@example.com or give us a call and let us know what we can gather for you. We'll arrange a time to pick up for contactless delivery.
