Celebrate National Library Week at your library: April 8-14, 2012!
Your Garfield County Libraries are where stories are read, retold, written, and created every day. Visit your local branch library to celebrate libraries this week and all year.
We may have moved to a temporary location but Santa knows where we are! Join us on Thursday, December 15, at 6:00 p.m. at the New Castle Branch Library. We'll be making holiday ornaments and visiting with jolly old St. Nick.
It's time for the Rifle Branch Library's annual Halloween Parade! Dress in your Halloween costume and trick-or-treat at Rifle City Hall and downtown businesses. Gather in the plaza in front of the Rifle Branch Library at 10:00 a.m. on Friday, October 28; the parade leaves at 10:30 sharp!
Nuestro desfile de Halloween es el 28 de octubre en 10:30 en la biblioteca de Rifle. ¡Lleve su disfraz!

Teen Read Week, an initiative of the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA), is an annual celebration to encourage teens to "Read for the Fun of It!"
Teens, do you need reading ideas? Check out YALSA's Teens' Top Ten, a "teen choice" list where teens nominate and choose their favorite books of the previous year! The 2010 list will be revealed during Teen Read Week in October but you can peruse last year's winners on the 2009 Teens' Top Ten list:
During Banned Books Week and all year 'round, the Garfield County Libraries defend your freedom to read!
Banned Books Week (BBW) is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read and the importance of the First Amendment. BBW highlights the benefits of free and open access to information while drawing attention to the harms of censorship by spotlighting actual or attempted bannings of books across the United States.
Happy Book Lovers Day from your friends (and fellow book lovers) at the Garfield County Libraries!
