Library district will need help facing challenges
July 2, 2010
Mary Anne Wilcox’s letter in last Friday’s Sky-Hi News underscored the value of our libraries to our communities and the challenges facing the Library District in meeting increasing demands for services with the prospect of significant reduction in tax revenues.
There are two organizations working cooperatively in support of our libraries: the Friends of the Library and the Grand County Library Foundation. Through book sales, special events and direct solicitation we seek to provide supplemental funds so that our libraries can maintain and build on their standard of excellence in programs and services.
There will be opportunities in the months ahead for all of us to help in this effort. We encourage you to support our libraries.
