We implemented the Prospector network for borrowing materials statewide as well as a mobile app, GCPLD 2 GO. We also continued working on new facilities hiring architects for three projects in Silt, Carbondale, and Glenwood Springs which began their design phases in 2011.
We also have available our annual reports dating back to 2006
We celebrated the grand openings of our new Parachute and Rifle Branches and continued working toward new branches in our other communities.
In 2009 we broke ground on our capital improvement projects, including renovation of the Parachute Branch and construction of a new Rifle Branch.
2008 was a great year for the Garfield County Public Library District! We saw increases in circulation, programming, and library card holders.
On January 1, 2007, the Garfield County Public Library System became the Garfield County Public Library District. The District also welcomed new Executive Director Amelia Shelley.
Voters approved a one mill property tax increase for 20 years, paving the way for major capital improvement projects for all six branches.
