Readers Say Thanks

The holidays are the perfect time to acknowledge the generosity of community members, and the Glenwood Springs Branch Library is fortunate to have a long list of people to thank. During the past year, the library has purchased books with money donated by the Glenwood Springs Art Guild, the Fraternal Order of the Eagles Ladies Auxiliary 215, and the Pardon My Garden Club. The City of Glenwood Springs discretionary funds facilitated the acquisition of language books on CD. The city donation was also used to support the Summer Reading Program and teen programming.Many people contributed time and energy to the phenomenally successful fall book sale, which is a fundraiser for the Friends of the Glenwood Springs Library. Thirty-eight volunteers assisted with set-up, sales and clean-up. Special thanks go to Kathy Whiting’s students at Glenwood Springs High School, the students from the Youth Recovery Program at Valley View Hospital and the work release crew from Garfield County. Additionally, the local media helped publicize the sale, and a front page story by the Post Independent generated a significant increase in book-loving customers. The book sale would not have been possible without the benefactors who donated used books throughout the year, as well as the loyal shoppers who provided the books with a new home.Through the Looking Glass bookstore sponsored its annual Children’s Book Week fundraiser for the library Nov. 17. Customers took advantage of a special one-day sale on children’s books and purchased book ornaments from the library wish tree. The books were then donated to the library. We gratefully acknowledge Sharon and John Graves for so kindly “book-marking” a share of their profits to return to the community.Ultimately, the library belongs to everyone and it is gratifying to see so many people contribute their resources to ensure our facility will continue to open its doors to information-seekers and bibliophiles. On behalf of the Glenwood Springs Branch of the Garfield County Library District, I extend my sincere thanks.Pat ConwayGlenwood Springs Library branch manager

On Friday, Nov. 2, Riverside Middle School held its 10th annual Harvest Daze Celebration. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our parents, community members, and other presenters who made this event so special, educational, and fun for our fifth- through eighth-grade students! Without their donations, support, and commitment, this event would not be possible. So, thank you again for helping to make this wonderful day a reality! Margaret Hesse and The Harvest Daze Committee and all of the staff andstudents at Riverside Middle School in New Castle
