The Tag Team

At our next meeting we will play a game based on the book and make survival bracelets. Also that week on the 21st of March we will travel to the Cover Theater in Fort Morgan for our own preview showing of the movie on opening day. We are teaming up with the Book and Movie Club from Brush Middle School.

The TAG Team meets every third Wednesday of the month at 3:30. We discuss books, do crafts together, and perform community service. All students from 6th – 12th grades are welcome to join us.

Sandra Dallas

New York Times best-selling author SANDRA DALLAS, the Colorado author of twelve adult novels, one young reader novel, and ten nonfiction books, was dubbed “a quintessential American voice” by Jane Smiley, in Vogue Magazine. Sandra’s novels with their themes of loyalty, friendship, and human dignity have been translated into a dozen foreign languages and have been optioned for films. Sandra is a very popular author for our local patrons, and we are excited to have her visit and speak with us.


Come join us in the main part of the library on Saturday, January 11, 2014, at 1:30 p.m. Barnes and Noble will be here selling copies of her books. After Sandra is finished speaking she will have a book signing, as well. We hope to see you on January 11th, and please bring your friends!


Get Well Soon, Deb

Get Well logoGet well soon, Deb

As many of you have probably heard our Director Deb Johnson experienced quite a fall. She broke her right wrist, left shoulder, and shattered her right shoulder, resulting in plates, screws and shoulder replacement surgery. She has been in the Greeley hospital and will be coming home to Brush soon.

The staff at the library have been answering the many questions everyone has expressed as best as we can. We also know that many of you would like to express your thoughts and best wishes to Deb. In an effort to help, we have a bulletin board in the front of the library that you may “leaf” your best wishes and a basket that you may put any notes that you would like Deb to receive. We will be delivering them in a timely manner. We also can deliver any personal cards you would like to send as well.

Also, many of our patrons have asked about taking meals for the family. The family would greatly appreciate meals so we have a list at the library of patrons who would like to help out in that way. We are waiting for Deb’s family to let us know when they will be ready to take those meals. So, if you would like you can come in or call and we can put you on the list we have started and will call when we know the family is ready to take meals.


Thank you to all our great patrons for all your thoughts and prayers.
