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."

A PPLD staff member was at the Walmart across the street this afternoon when a cashier approached her and said (with tears in her eyes).

“I just wanted to thank you for being so kind to me. It’s because of you that I got this job here. I was at the library some time ago and you let me use the computer, even though my card was blocked. I needed to fill out the application for this job, and I did, and I got it! I was on the verge of homelessness and hopelessness when I came into your library, and because of you my life is better. Thank you so much!”
