Cathy Rapp at the Fraser Valley Library, Nov-Dec 2016
"I began devoting my time and effort to developing my skills in photography once I reached a point in my life where I was free to choose how I wanted to spend my time. That time occurred upon my retirement after fifteen years as a middle school special education teacher and ten years as a middle school assistant principal/athletic director. My retirement lasted ten days. It was then that I started my business, Red Fleece Studios.

"Check Out the Music" at the Fraser Valley Library and other GCLD Branches
In 2006 the Grand County Blues Society (GCBS) donated instruments, music CDs, and instructional DVDs to all 5 Grand County libraries, sparking a unique partnership and inspiring a program called, “Check Out the Music.” Through this FREE program, library patrons are able to check out guitars, keyboards, bass guitars, and drum pads- just as they would borrow any other library materials.
Richard Koller at the Fraser Valley Library, August through September 2016
Richard currently lives in Grand Lake and is a Colorado native. His inspiration comes from the beautiful scenery in Rocky Mountain National Park and landscape throughout Grand County. He constructs custom frames and primarily utilizes recycled materials. For more information, please call Joy at the Fraser Valley Library # 726-5689.
Being able to check out books for free is a fantastic reason to get a library card... but it's only one of many reasons. Did you know that you can check out DVDs, audio CDs, eBooks, audiobooks, and digital magazines too? And that's not to mention access to online learning resources like Mango Languages or Lynda.com, where you can learn an immense variety of languages and skills.
The Grand County Library district offers a variety of basic office services for our patrons and the public - from meeting and study rooms, to printing, faxing, and WiFi. Not all services are available at all branches, so be sure to call your local branch or visit our Office Services page to check.
