Lake County Public Library offers use of Colorado Parks and Wildlife pass

Lake County Public Library has partnered with Colorado Parks and Wildlife to loan a state park entry pass for one week. This partnership provides an outdoor learning experience for library cardholders and expands public library services. The goal of the program is to provide residents an opportunity to explore state parks before purchasing a park pass, and the hope is that library cardholders will enjoy the experience they will want to purchase their own park passes.

Starting June 20, the first day of summer, the public library will have two backpacks to loan that each contain a state park pass hangtag for the rearview mirror, one set of binoculars, a Colorado wildlife guide, a Colorado trees and wildflower guide, a guide to Colorado’s 42 state parks, a Leave No Trace card, an activity ideas list and a program evaluation card. We ask that you inventory all items in the backpack to make sure they are in good repair before return, and to fill out the evaluation form to help sustain the program. Packs and passes will circulate to adults, with no holds or renewals.

Friends of Lake County Public Library are selling Leadville Gold Rush calendars. The calendar starts with July 2016 and goes through December 2017 (18 months). Each month features a different historic photo. The large size costs $20 and the small size costs $10. If you live out of town and want to place an order please print and fill out the calendar order form. Please note-there is a $3 shipping and handling fee per calendar for mail orders.

Photo Scanning Station

Do you have a box of old family photos that you've wanted to scan and preserve or share with others? Bring your photos into the library and use our new photo scanning station to digitize them. You can also use this station to take the photos off of your camera or phone and upload or save to a disk. The photo scanning station is open during regular library hours on a first come first serve basis. Time is limited to one hour unless no one else is waiting to use it.
