Evidence of Program’s Success

In 2017 the Grand County Library Foundation received a grant to initiate the Grand County Community of Writers. This program provided a place where the county’s writers can meet monthly to share their work and provide constructive criticism. The program also launched a series of author talks. During the fall, local and front range authors met with the community to talk about their work.

“I have often thought that nothing would do more extensive good at small expense than the establishment of a small circulating library in every county, to consist of a few well-chosen books, to be lent to the people of the country under regulations as would secure their safe return in due time.”

/ Thomas Jefferson – letter to John Wyche, 1809.
