Artist Trading Cards

February 19th, 12:30pm
Effie Banta Room

We call all area artists to the library every third Saturday of the month from 12:30 to 2 p.m. to swap Artist Trading Cards (ATCs). ATCs are miniature pieces of art that are then traded among attendees of the swap. Swaps are open to any media, materials, or techniques as long as the card fits in a standard trading card sleeve of 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches. The swap at the library is the district’s longest running program and a small, rotating display of ATCs is located in the Effie Banta Meeting Room.

Busy Reader's Book Club
March 16th 6:30pm
Location: TBD
(Based on Covid-19 Restriction levels in March)

Register now for a special meeting of the Busy Reader's Book Club, where we will be joined by Boulder, CO  authors Miriam Murcutt and Richard Starks to discuss their new novel, In A Town Called Paradox.

“I wasn’t looking for Marilyn Monroe when I bumped into her, even though I knew she was in town filming River of No Return…”
So begins In A Town Called Paradox – set in Utah, in the 1950s, when the "Big Five" Hollywood studios were lured to that state by the fiery red-rock scenery that formed the perfect backdrop to the blockbuster movies they planned to film. This historical novel is a compelling read that redefines the meaning of love as it asks the question: If each of us has a life story, then who decides how it unfolds – and how it should end?

The Library will have several print copies available soon! Stop in, call us at (303) 823-5165, or e-mail  to reserve your copy!
