The Board of Trustees has been examining data and discussing alternatives since February 2016. In the face of irreversible revenues losses and the resizing of GCLD, the Board asked, “How can Grand County be cost effective in maintaining quality library services for the greatest number within the parameters of Library Law and the Colorado Library Standards” Given that service outlets of public libraries are required to:

  • Be open for at least 20 hours per week
  • Have paid staff present during all hours of service
  • Provide public computers with access to the internet
  • Be engaged in resource sharing with other Colorado libraries.
