Library News

Dear Friends,

We will be closed on Monday, September 2 in observance of Labor Day. 
I have included a few photos of our new shelving provided by a generous grant from the Catherine Dumraese Trust. It has brightened up the building and simplified the organization of our materials. If you haven't seen it in person yet, I hope you will stop by. Later in the fall, we will be adding a new circulation service desk. At this time, the 2019-2020 budget proposal includes replacing our 40 year old roof, and the Wade Foundation is funding high density shelving in the archives, doubling our capacity. I am very excited and grateful for each of these improvements and the gifts that provide them!
September is Library Card Sign-up Month. We will have a drawing for a Kindle Fire 7" Tablet. Each patron who checks out materials in September will have one chance to enter the drawing. The drawing will be held on October 1. 
We will host Chuck Rogers, Colorado County Emergency Manager, on Tuesday, September 10 at 6pm to tell us ways each of us can prepare for a disaster and inform us about what the County is doing to prepare.
