Letter From The CEO:

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to July! Remember that our Summer Learning events continue all month long—2:00 on Wednesdays at Fickel Park for families, and 2:00 on Thursdays at the library for tweens and teens. You can also pick up your prizes or drawing tickets all month long, so be sure to visit us and get credit for all the reading you’re doing.

For adults, we’ve got Food for Thoughts coming up. We’ll supply the food, you all provide the thoughts. This month our topic will be “taking care of yourself.” And for anyone who is concerned about the pollinators in our community (or wondering if you should be) we’ll have an expert beekeeper here at the end of the month who can answer all your questions.

Just so everyone knows, the Library District has commissioned a poll to help us gauge community support for our plans for a potential new building. If you get a phone call or text asking you to participate, that’s legitimate and we need that information, so we hope you’ll participate.

Stay cool everyone, and come see us! We’re here and eager to help you.

Amie P.

Library CEO

Adult Summer Reading Program

As in years past, we also have a summer reading incentive just for adults. With prizes too!

Like previous years, we will have a punch card and after 4 punches (4 books) your name will be entered into a prize drawing for a gift card.

Call or come in to see what prizes are being offered this year, or if you have any questions.


This Is Berthoud Podcast

Did you know we have a podcast? Take a listen and share it around.

This podcast will not just be about library 'stuff', but about the wonderful community we live in. Straight from our CEO, Amie!

We're here for you, to support you, to inform you, and to care for you the best way we know how.
