PPLD Honored by Gazette's Best of the Springs

Winner 2015: The Gazette's Best of the Springs

Pikes Peak Library District was honored in two categories by The Gazette's Best of the Springs!

Expert Pick for Hands-Down Great Place for Kids
"On any given day of the week, parents can find a free educational event for their kids to attend at one of the many libraries of the Pikes Peak Library District. From newborns to teens, the district makes an effort to reach out to all kids and give them age-appropriate programming and resources to help them learn more. Programming is especially good in the summer months when the libraries bring music, crafts, animals, and movies for kids and parents to enjoy together."

Voter's Choice for Teen Hangout
"Teens can enjoy myriad activities, get help with reading, writing and math homework as well as learn how to use library resources for research and enjoyment. The district has organized a wide range of unique programs including workshops in electronics, gaming, tutoring and knitting."
