Colorado Gives Day a success

Garfield County Libraries Foundation wants to say a big thank you to all who donated on Colorado Gives Day. The Foundation was able to raise $1,525 for our six branch libraries. We truly appreciate your commitment to library services in Garfield County. Because of you, all of the Garfield County branch libraries are able to serve over 1,000 people a day. And your generosity will allow the Garfield County Libraries to continue to provide a world of possibilities to our communities. Thank you!

Thank you from Carbondale’s Clay Center Annual Cup Auction

On December 4th, the Carbondale Clay Center held its 18th Annual Cup Auction. This year, we received over 220 donated, hand-made cups, from artists all over the country. As I wrap up the last of them, I feel compelled to publicly recognize the multitude of generous individuals that help make this event possible.

I wanted to give a heart felt thanks to the following: Sunni McBride and Susan Proctor for generously sponsoring the Members Preview and the Cup Auction. Lynn Kirchner of Amore Realty, for helping us find the perfect location for this event and to Bob and Jerri Shapiro for kindly letting us hold the event in their beautiful space on Main Street in Carbondale.

For the labor and love put into the food, Sandie Gardner and Giana Grossman. For the festive cocktails, Michelle Marlow of the Marble Distillery and Klinton Wheeler of Summit Distributing. Thanks to Kara Montie and Edward Barber for the amazing music played during our Members Preview and to Seth Davis, who once again serenaded us during the Cup Auction.
