Tonight was Coffee with the Director of the Clearview Library, Ann Kling, at Toast Coffee and Wine Bar here in Windsor, CO.
The main topic was the resurrection of the Friends of the Library Club. This club was on hiatus for a bit, but now is looking to re-form in order to primarily help the library with fundraising activities. Any and all are welcome to join. Just visit the library’s website and enter your email to be on the list. Volunteer-initiated programs such as maybe a gala dinner, art show, bake sale, etc were discussed.
The Colorado Author Series was a popular topic with three authors visiting this year, including Peter Heller and Sandra Dallas. This series is sponsored by an endowment with the idea thrown around of a possible pre-reception.
The Summer Adventure Program is revving up, which is a program to reward summer reading for kids and adults. Along with this is added activities for the kids during the summer.
Story time has instituted advanced tickets in order to keep the number of participants manageable. However, no one wants to discourage participation so the ticketing system is still in the pilot stages and is in review.
Pub trivia is huge and there are requests for more nights. This would require either a sponsorship or giving up another program in order to pay for staff’s time. This was under discussion.
Overall, a very encouraging and exciting hour. It’s awesome to see the heart Windsor has for others in the community and to be engaged in giving back. Exciting programs and events are in store for Windsor. Volunteers are always needed and you do make a difference. For all the details, visit the library’s website or in person today!
