why are you guys closed for thanksgiving? i don't celebrate that.

There's no holiday that every single person in this country celebrates, but Thanksgiving is as close as it gets.

Will these holidays/closures be updated soon for 2017?

It would be nice to get an email announcing unexpected closures in advance like the one to do painting on Saturday 4/14 so we can plan pick up of holds accordingly. Also, I would hope that when you have an unexpected closure that you give us more time to pick up holds.

You're not closed Columbus Day? Just curious, because banks, schools, and the Post Office are and it is a National holiday.

Sorry - but there is no such thing as a national holiday. I expect you mean a federal holiday, which means that the federal government observes it. And that's it really. The federal/national/central government defines these holidays for their own purposes. But they have no force of law for any other person, group, or institution, I believe.

I think it's fair to say that only some schools observe Columbus day, for example. Same for banks. Some do, some don't.

Hello, i just from the springs out to Payton and love my Library. Sand creek is open on Sundays from 1-6. Is it possible that High Praire might consider a couple hour on Sundays as well. It is one of my days off.
Thank you

Dear Bettina,

We would love to have more libraries open on Sunday but funding for staffing those hours is limited to what we have now. In addition to our three main libraries, Penrose, East and Library 21c, we have tried to position our libraries that are open Sundays geographically. Monument for the north and Sand Creek for the south are open on Sunday. As the city expands east, having a larger facility in that area is a long term goal as well has having Sunday hours. For now we hope you will make the 15 minute drive to our Library 21c branch which has a large collection, programs, a maker and computer lab and many study areas for Sunday use.

Due to any Weather conditions, would you be closing, and would that be told on the website?

The front page says East, Fountain, Ruth Holley, and Sand Creek libraries will open at noon on October 18th. Is this a typo?

This is not a typo. East, Fountain, Ruth Holley, and Sand Creek libraries are indeed opening at noon (as opposed to their regular open times) on Fri., Oct. 18, 2019. They are open on their regular days and hours aside from that date.

How is the public notified of library closures due to weather? Are you closed when school districts where your branches are located are closed?
