Red Feather Lakes library update for November

We begin November with a reminder that the library is continuing extended Friday hours – 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. – to allow those with pressing schedules (or, who find the regular hours of Tuesday – Saturday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. an inconvenient fit) an opportunity to visit the library.

Secondly, we are looking for a few good men – and of course, women – who wish to make a difference in their community. Volunteerism at the library is always welcome. Contact us at 970-881-2664.
