In the library’s spirit of building programs and resources around community interests and needs, we have recently applied for Common Cents for Colorado, a project designed to provide information about personal money management. We were pleased to be selected and now have many new resources to share with the community. We have a few seminars that will be offered this year and next where you might learn something useful. If you think you know everything there is to know about your personal finances, take our self-test and see if you could benefit from one of our seminars.
Inquire at the front desk if you would like to take the self-test or if you have any questions about financial literacy. Seminars are every Monday in August at 6 pm. Registration is not necessary, but is appreciated. If you would like to sign up, have a staff member add your name to our registration list or Click Here to sign up online.
We hope to see you here on Monday nights to get some Common Cents!

After a long and eventful summer, we will be taking a break from our weekly activities. Keep your eyes out for Kid Fun Time and TAG events in September!
Lovers of trees, budding arborists, and tree huggers will be happy to know that East Morgan County Library District is partnering with the Colorado State Forest Service to bring our community the next Adults Only program. Forestry Day, open to high school aged students and adults, will be held at the library from 11 am to approximately 4 pm on Saturday, July 30th. This event will begin with a team of speakers–CSFS Community manager Keith Wood, CFSF’s Fort Collins District Forester Boyd Lebeda, and Forester Matt Norville–educating participants on general information about the trees in our community. Topics will include identifying trees, proper time and place to plant, management techniques, how to determine growth and condition, and much more. Participants will be introduced to the CO-Tree View app, the Colorado Statewide Tree Inventory tool on which much of this data is recorded, and about how one may find more information at www.cotreeview.com. Following a short break for lunch (provided by East Morgan County Library) participants will collect data on the trees surrounding the library for CO-Tree View, measuring and tagging trees using materials provided by CSFS, putting your new knowledge to work! To register, please contact the library by phone (970)-842-4596 or in person for what promises to be an informative and interactive program.

The last activity of the summer reading program will be on July 20th at 6 pm in the library park. We have encouraged families to attend all of our programs throughout the summer and this is no exception. Bring your kids, parents, grand-kids, dogs, and anyone else you can find to the park for hot dogs, s’mores and a short presentation to celebrate the beginning of a new school year and the end of our summer reading program.
