PPLD Receives Award for Excellence in Community Infrastructure

PPLD Receives Award for Excellence in Community Infrastructure

The Colorado Springs Regional Business Alliance recognized Pikes Peak Library District for their Excellence in Community Infrastructure award.

"The Pikes Peak Library District proudly opened Library 21c this summer. It is the "launch pad" for 21st century library service and the first facility of its kind in the country. If you haven’t seen it yet, it will challenge everything you know about the public library. It’s not just a space, it’s a paradigm shift. Features include Makerspaces, Center for Public Media, Business & Entrepreneurial Center, a 400-seat Performance and Meeting Venue, and many additional services."
