80 Years of Community

See what the library means to your community and celebrate the past with an interactive exhibit at the Glenwood Springs Library in August. View important documents, articles, and artifacts from the Garfield County Libraries’ 80 years and the Glenwood Springs Library’s five years at the new facility. You can also write a story, draw a picture, or find that one word that describes your love of your community library and have it become a part of the art. This exhibit begins Monday, Aug. 6, and runs through the end of August. For more information call the Glenwood Springs Library at 970-945-5958.
