All you need is your Library. But your Library needs you, too

Libraries are a vital lifeline for the whole community. Job seekers can find resume writing and interview preparation help, career search navigation, and educational opportunities for job skills. Parents and caregivers of young children can find early literacy and education opportunities, hands-on programs, a Toy Library with toys for motor skill development, homework help, homeschool resources programs, and a wide range of other resources to support their children’s growth and development. Teenagers can enjoy resources and services like safe spaces to hang out with friends, gaming consoles, research resources, test and college prep help, and tutoring. And anyone can enjoy our vast collection of books and other media, genealogy resources, no-cost passes to local attractions, classes and community activities, and other services and resources we provide.

In 2023, Pikes Peak Library District enjoyed hosting a wide range of programs to enrich the lives of our community. We took on reading and activity challenges with you during the Winter Adult Reading Program and with local youth during Summer Adventure. We had the honor of hosting the Americans and the Holocaust traveling exhibit and a variety of programs centering on this history. In July we started reading The Girls Who Stepped Out of Line with our community, and had the pleasure of hearing from the author, Mari K. Edder, during All Pikes Peak Reads. Local teens submitted outstanding works of art to the annual Teen Art Contest, local 4th and 5th graders submitted thoughtful poems to the Jean Ciavonne Poetry Contest, and local writers of all ages sent us a wide range of creative stories for All Pikes Peak Writes. We also hosted art classes, games, book clubs, author talks, and many other programs.

Donations are a vital part of Library funding that allows us to purchase materials and plan programs for our community. We invite you to make a difference in your community with a kind contribution through the PPLD Foundation during the Year End Giving Campaign. We thank you for your support and generosity!
