Good things are happening at the Kremmling Library
March 11, 2009
The Grand County Library District has received a one-time, $50,000, 2009 Board of County Commissioners Grant awarded for making improvements to the Kremmling Library facility this year. Plans, costs and a budget for the improvements are being developed. Meanwhile, a new lease for the facility is under negotiation with the town of Kremmling.
On Wednesday, March 25, from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm, the Kremmling Library will host a Kremmling Chamber Mixer. Food and beverages will be served and the library staff will highlight library materials and services.
“The Secret Life of Bees” will be shown at the library on Tuesday, March 24th at 6:00 as this month’s Family Movie Night. A book club for adults, the Brown Bag Book Bunch, meets for lunch and a book discussion on Wednesday, March 18th at 11:30. This month they will discuss “Home to Holly Springs” by Jan Karon. A discussion on composting for new and experienced gardeners will be taking place on Saturday, March 7th from 10:00-12:00. This program is sponsored by the CSU extension office and Morales Farms.
Youth Services Librarian, Lauren Dilts, is working with a select group of 6th grade students on a reading exploration activity. This program is made possible by a grant from the Grand Foundation awarded to the Friends of the Grand County Library, Inc.
Additionally, ongoing youth programs include: Toddler Storytime on Thursdays at 10:30, Moms and Tots Baby Sign-Language on Wednesdays at 10:30, Knitting Club on Fridays at 4:00 and the After School Club for 3rd-6th grade on Mondays.
Volunteers are needed for the upcoming children’s Summer Reading Program. The theme for the 2009 program is “Be Creative”. High school students can earn community service hours towards their graduation requirement. Volunteers will create displays, shelve children’s materials, help children in filling out required reading logs, talk to children about the books they are reading, and assist with special summer children’s programs.
This summer, plan to stop by and say hello to former Kremmling branch librarian, Irene Ritschard, who will be filling in for current branch librarian, Emily Pedersen, during her maternity leave. And stop by anytime to connect with your community and enjoy all of the free library services and materials.
