Readers Say Thanks

Where would any of us be without our friends? Friendships can take many forms and in the case of libraries, supporters often choose to form a group. The Friends of the Glenwood Springs Library incorporated in 1984 and since that time they have dedicated their efforts to raising funds for the Glenwood Springs Branch of the Garfield County Public Library System.National Friends of the Library Week is celebrated from Oct. 22 through Oct. 28, and the timing is especially appropriate as the Glenwood Library Friends take stock of their fall used book sale. The recent sale was one of the most profitable ever held, and the proceeds will be used to buy materials for the library and to support children’s programming, especially the 2007 Summer Reading Program. Approximately 34 volunteers assisted with the book sale, and there is not enough space to name them all, so we hope each individual will accept the heartfelt thanks of the library system. In addition, we extend appreciation to Kathy Whiting and the Future Business Leaders of America at the Glenwood Springs High School, as well as Dave Black and the young people of the Youth Recovery Center, for their assistance in hefting and moving hundreds of boxes of books during the sale set-up and clean-up. We also wish to thank Peak Tent and Party Rental for providing us with rental tables at a discounted price. The Bank of Colorado graciously allowed us to hang our banner on their building, and local media representatives made certain our public service announcements appeared in print form and aired on radio and television. We are indebted to the wonderful people who donated books for the sale, as well as the customers who came and purchased books. If we have failed to thank anyone, hopefully the lapse will be forgiven, as any oversight is unintentional.The Friends always welcomes new members and a membership form may be obtained at the library at 413 9th St. or by calling 945-5958. The dedicated board of the Glenwood Friends holds a public meeting at the library on the third Tuesday of each month at 5 p.m. The library system is grateful for the on-going support of the Friends of the Glenwood Springs Library.Pat ConwayBranch ManagerGlenwood Springs Branch Library

Runaway development in Glenwood Springs

We are so angry about what has been going on with developments the last few years. Small-town character is basically gone. For what is left, we need to stop developments and like a business, take…
