Fountain Community Exhibit

All throughout September, the Fountain Community Exhibit will be showcased in the Fountain Meeting Room. In conjunction with the 40th anniversary of PPLD opening the Fountain Library, they will be displaying a pop-up exhibit of historic Fountain Images. Photographs illustrate ranching, farming, historic centers of community, and ultimately the spirit of the people who worked and lived here. The pop-up exhibit asks community members to consider what makes Fountain distinctive and how we fit into this unique history. (The exhibit contains images from the collections of PPLD, Special Collections, and the Fountain Valley Historical Society and Museum.) The Library will display these images from September 2 - 30 in the Community Meeting Room.

  • Tin foil
  • Bowl
  • Scissors
  • Pennies
  • Water


  1. Cut a piece of tin foil 5 x 6 inches.
  2. Fold up the sides of the boat so it will not sink and hold a cargo of pennies. Get creative and see if you can develop fancy boats.
  3. Place the boat in the bowl of water. Begin adding pennies for the boat's cargo.
  4. See how many pennies your boat can carry before it sinks.
  5. Have some friends over and try this experiment with them. See which one of you can create the boat that will carry the greatest amount of cargo.
  6. Be sure to dry the pennies before you begin adding them as cargo because remember water has weight!
  7. Have the person who created the boat begin adding pennies to their boat while another person counts the number of pennies as they are added to the boat.
  8. Try different ways to distribute the weight of the pennies on your barge so you can carry the maximum number.

The Lewis-Palmer HomeSchool Enrichment Academy (HSEA) is a program designed to support families of homeschooled students in kindergarten through 8th grade. Children in grades K-5 receive a full array of Enrichment activities to include Music, Art, PE, and exploratory activities in science, literature, geography, and history. Students in grades 6 - 8 can choose from several elective offerings in those subjects and more.

The Lewis-Palmer HomeSchool Enrichment Academy is offered at no cost to enrolled families. This is made possible by educational funds received from the state of Colorado. Due to this fact, students enrolling in HSEA are required to attend for the full day (Thursdays from 8:20 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.) and may not be dually enrolled in other programs or schools that also receive state education funds. While HSEA offers homeschooled students a connection to the public school setting, we are not staffed to offer a full array of education services (including special education services).

Young Adult Services Specialist Philip Krogmeier has been with Pikes Peak Library District for almost 10 years. But he's not just a staff member, he's a library supporter is who is happy to share his time and treasure to help make PPLD an amazing place for our community. We put him on the hot chair to ask him questions about why PPLD is so important to him.

Tell us your name and what you do at PPLD.
My name is Philip Krogmeier, and I am a Young Adult Services Specialist at Library 21c. I assist in preparing and presenting programs for our teen patrons, and I help at all of the public service desks.

What is your favorite part of your job/the patrons you work with?
I love to help my teen patrons find books that speak to them.

What is your favorite thing about PPLD?
My favorite thing about PPLD is the sheer variety of services it provides. PPLD is so much more than a traditional library system.

Why do you choose to give back and support PPLD?
I choose to support PPLD because PPLD has supported me since the first day I walked through the doors of the East Library. I immediately felt welcomed, and that feeling hasn't faded in almost 10 years.

Why do you think it’s important for the community to support PPLD?
Without community support, PPLD wouldn't be able to provide the level of assistance that it does. PPLD serves as an anchor for the Colorado Springs community, allowing everyone to gain access to materials and services.

What is the most memorable question you’ve been asked by a patron?
A patron once asked me if she could take a photo of me so that she could use it as a reference for a painting of Jesus.

Where/when can people come by and say hi to you?
I can usually be found most weekdays at the 21c Teen Desk or upstairs in the Makerspace.

    Reuse your old biodegradable packing peanuts and make a craft! You can tell they are biodegradable because the texture will be somewhat “cheeto” like and if you put water on 2 pieces they will stick together.

    Make a fun pattern out of your packing peanuts and then dab a little water on the pieces you want to stick together. Hold for a few seconds while they dry.

    You won’t be able to paint them because any liquid will cause them to melt.

    Have fun finding out what you can make.

    Colorado Springs, Colo. (July 9, 2019) – Children’s Hospital Colorado, Colorado Springs announced a partnership with Pikes Peak Library District (PPLD) to support the Summer Adventure reading program serving more than 37,000 kids each summer. Additionally, the new hospital will provide free health-related resources, educational opportunities and family programming as part of their partnership with PPLD.

    “As parents, one of our primary focuses is on stimulating our kids’ imaginative, creative cognitive abilities,” said Margaret Sabin, president of Children’s Colorado’s Southern Region. “This program provides families and kids with fun summer activities that are healthier and more engaging alternatives to watching Netflix for the rest of the summer. Our partnership with PPLD allows us to support families in creating summer fun that encourages mental and physical wellness and connects kids to their local community.”

    The Summer Adventure reading program invites kids ages 0-18 to complete a series of activities listed on age-specific game cards, such as reading a book, camping, crafting, making a new food dish, or visiting a local museum. Once completed, kids are eligible to win prizes through July 31.

    Established in 1903, PPLD is a nationally recognized system of public libraries and it is the second largest library district in the state with a service area covering 2,070 square miles. More than 185,000 children live within the District, and 2.7 million items for children and teens are checked out of PPLD each year. The service area includes Calhan, Colorado Springs, Monument, Falcon, Fountain, Manitou Springs, Ute Pass, Palmer Lake, the United States Air Force Academy, Fort Carson and many other municipalities and military installations.

    “Partnering with Children’s Hospital Colorado, Colorado Springs is a natural fit for our organization,” said Lance James, Chief Development Officer and Foundation Executive Director for the Pikes Peak Library District Foundation. “Our mission is to connect our patrons with the resources they need to achieve their goals. Providing additional access to state-of-the-art healthcare resources through this partnership, in addition to the health information resources already provided in our Family Place Libraries, is just one more way for us to achieve that goal.”
