Garfield County Libraries is excited to offer the Food for Fines program again this February. Bring in nonperishable food items to any of the six branch libraries and receive credit on your library card account. For each item you donate, you will receive a $1 credit toward overdue fines that are currently on your account (not lost materials or fees). All items donated will be given to the local LIFT-UP.

Come sing with the Sounds of Praise! choir for the presentation of “It Is Finished,” an Easter Cantata. All singers welcome. Rehearsals are Wednesday evenings from 5:30-7:30 p.m. in Bethel Chapel at the First United Methodist Church in Glenwood Springs on Ninth and Cooper.
