Main Display

- Black History Month -

Black History Month is an annual observance in February, celebrating the past and present achievements of African Americans.  The month honors the history and contributions of African Americans to American life. Dr. Woodson, known as the "Father of Black History", chose the second week of February because it commemorates the birthdays of two men who greatly affected the African American community: Abraham Lincoln (February 12) and Frederick Douglass (February 14).This display highlights African American leaders within the community and throughout history. We have also included works by black authors.

- Water Issues In Colorado -

Water may be an essential element (compound!) for life, but the average Westerner expects it simply to exist when turning on the faucet or spigot. Our lives are not usually consumed with finding and procuring water. But what happens when a state or metropolitan area outgrows or severely taxes its water source’s ability to service the population? To coincide with the library’s February 17 screening, in collaboration with the Center for Sustainability, of The Great Divide, we present this book display on Water Issues in Colorado and the American West.
