Connecting with our libraries just became easier

Email newsletters will help you stay current on events at the library — like the popular Toy Hacking Workshop held in Rifle in November. The event will also take place at 1 p.m. Jan. 9 in New Castle.

Do you love quality local events?

Ever find yourself looking for the next great book to read?

Do you love your libraries?

Well, the Garfield County Libraries want to connect you with books, events and all the great things we offer. Starting in January, each of our libraries will be sending monthly email newsletters to members and interested individuals. Anyone on the list can expect information on upcoming events from their local library, hot new book information, as well as the occasional book review, tech tip or library news.

These monthly e-newsletters will take over for the old districtwide quarterly newsletter, Page by Page. The libraries recently completed a marketing and communications plan, in which we held community meetings and conducted a survey that asked for community input.

Based on your suggestions, we realized that we could give each community more timely information by embracing monthly e-newsletters. It also saves paper and printing costs, so more of your investment in us can go toward books and materials.

No spam. Period. As librarians, we know your privacy is of utmost importance. We don’t sell our email address lists, or share addresses with anyone. By giving us your email address you can expect to get one email from your local library each month, and occasionally a special email containing big news. And, if you ever move away, unsubscribing takes less than a minute.

Subscribing to this service is easy. In fact, everyone who has already given their email address to the libraries will be on their home library’s list. If that doesn’t apply to you, you can go to our website, http://www.gcpld.org, and click on “Sign Up for Library News” at the bottom of the page. You can select which library (or multiple libraries) you’d like to receive an e-newsletter from each month. Or you can stop by any Garfield County Library and give your email address to your local librarian and ask to be put on the list.

We hope you enjoy the e-newsletters, and thank you for your continued support!
