Welcome:

Letter From The CEO:

Please remember that the Library is a good place to relax and cool off during these hot summer days. We’re happy to host you, and we’ll even suggest a book to read while you’re here.


We’ve wrapped up our Summer Learning Initiative events, but you still have until August 13th to claim your prizes or submit your drawing tickets. Finish your reading or your projects soon! We’ll draw prize tickets and start contacting the winners during the middle of the month.


Be aware that we have a couple of days that the Library will be Closed in the next few weeks. We’ll be closed Thursday, August 18, for Staff Day; Monday, September 5, for Labor Day; and Thursday, September 8, for the Colorado Association of Libraries Conference.


While you’re wrapping up your summers, we’re busy preparing our fall class and event schedule. Storytime continues year-round, but look for the return of Book Club, Writers Group, and Family Game Nights in September, along with some new events we’re excited to offer to all of you.


Amie P.

Library CEO
