Check out "The Noiseguy" at Tuesday, June 21st at 10am at the Carbondale Town Hall. Charlie "The Noiseguy" Williams returns with his "Many Noises, One Mouth" show. Charlie is a vocal sound impressionist who can imitate the sound of lightsabers, cars, planes, and much, much more! He's also a kids' comedian, author, illustrator, and onomatopoet. He encourages even the most reluctant reader to make noise when they're reading. Get more information about "The Noiseguy" and check out videos here!

In celebration of National Library Week, the Gordon Cooper Library staff invites everyone to a hands-on demonstration of the Databases available on the Garfield County Public Library District website. We will be demonstrating enhanced searching methods in our catalogue, as well as how to find accurate, reliable, peer-reviewed information on the library's subscription databases. Access to these databases is free to all Garfield County Library patrons. The databases cover a myriad of topics -- everything from automotive repair to geneology to legal advice.
As part of Teen Tech Week, libraries up and down the valley will be competing against each other for bragging rights in a battle for Mario Kart supremacy!

The battle will be held on Wednesday, March 9th from 4 to 6 p.m., and also includes the libraries in Aspen and Basalt. Contact your local branch library to register or for more information.
Please join us for a discussion of Diane Ravitch’s book “The Death and Life of the Great American School System: How Testing and Choice Are Undermining Education”.

Let your voice be heard! We are reorganizing our TAG so come help plan the teen space in our new library. We are looking for people with great ideas, and will meet on the third Monday every month.
