Have you ever looked closely at the bricks on the walkway leading into the library? You'll find tributes to loved ones, friendship, pets, and even the library director, not to mention witty sayings, book references, and more. Stop by our tent at Broomfield Days to learn how you can get your own brick on the walkway (or ask for a brochure the next time you are in the library). Bricks make great holiday gifts--and the holidays will be here before we know it!

Hard to believe, but the first day of school is just under 3 weeks away! Still, that means there are 20 days of potential pool reading remaining. Pick up some books at our store in the library and don't worry too much about a few drops of water landing on them. For August, children's books will continue to be half price; in addition, all nonfiction books will also be half price. All the shelves and carts in these categories have been restocked, so stop in soon!

"There’s no reason to blot the page up with weird little marks. I mean, if you write properly you shouldn’t have to punctuate." -- Cormac McCarthy

Parul Sehgal once argued that style “is 90 percent punctuation.” A glance at Adam Calhoun’s visual comparisons of novels stripped down to just their punctuation marks would sugges…

How about this idea for the leftover books from yesterday's Friends book sale?
We take items large and small, as we do both a regular silent auction and a "grab-bag" low-cost table. Value of donations is tax-deductible. Think about it!
