Summer Reading Program

As the 2014 Grand County Library District Summer Reading Program draws to a close, we would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere appreciation to the generous sponsors and volunteers that made our program possible.

Each year, children from all over Grand County look forward to the opportunity to sign up for the GCLD Summer Reading Program. Families and children who might not otherwise visit a library are drawn in by the chance to earn prizes for reading and to attend fun and educational performances.

Statistics show that children who read over the summer make great educational strides and are far better prepared to begin school in the fall than children who do not read. Library reading programs offer children incentives to read, making it a fun and rewarding experience!

This summer more than ever, sponsorship and volunteers were a driving force behind the existence of the 2014 GCLD Summer Reading Program. Due to limited resources this year, we would not have been able to offer the program without the generous support of community businesses and dedicated volunteers.

On behalf of the nearly 700 Grand County children who participated in our program, we offer our deep gratitude for making the 2014 Summer Reading Program a reality!

Our sincere thanks go to: The Friends of Grand County Libraries Inc., Winter Park Resort, YMCA of the Rockies – Snow Mountain Ranch, Country Ace Hardware of Granby, The Inn at SilverCreek, McDonald’s in Granby, Subway in Kremmling, Alpine Lumber, The Fabric Nook, Sharkey’s, Grand Mountain Bank, Big Shooter’s Coffee, Last Time Round Thrift Store, Flowers by Marcia, Mountain Parks Electric, Kremmling Volunteer Firefighters, Hot Sulphur Springs Volunteer Firefighters, Rebecca Guthrie, Leslie Crosby, Emmy Lou Harmon, Rhea Gallagher, Brenda Kellen, Anne Steers, Roxane White, Cindy Hald, Jane Watts, Carol McConnel, Kaitlin McConnel, Shawn Davis, Merilyn Hunter, Stephanie Kroepfl, Laura Trezoglou, Jacque Ossian, Holly Sheppard.
