Big honor for small Colorado library


LARIMER COUNTY — A tiny community library along the Colorado-Wyoming State line just received a huge grant to help upgrade its facility.

The Red Feather Lakes Library was one of three libraries (out of 74) around the world to receive a $100,000 grant.

The grant was provided by EBSCO Information Services to convert the library to solar energy.

EBSCO is the leading provider of research databases, e-journals, magazine subscriptions, e-books and discovery services to libraries across the world, according to Red Feather Lakes Library.

“We are thrilled we were even considered!” said Creed Kidd, the library’s Director. “[This] allows us to have green power”.

The grant money will help create a solar array for the library — providing it with back up power services and back up internet services.

The library figures all of this will be installed sometime in 2019.
