Thank you, Jefferson County! Your generosity is enabling Prom Swap to go on. We received hundreds of dress donations and now we're ready for our teens to either swap their dress for new-to-them dresses, or they “buy” something with canned goods. Prom Swap items "cost" an equal trade, or five cans per dress, two for shoes, one per accesssory. Donations benefit Florence Crittenton High School and the Jeffco Action Center.

Alzheimer's disease is not a normal part of aging although the greatest known risk factor is increasing age, and the majority of people with Alzheimer's are 65 and older. But Alzheimer's is not just a disease of old age. Up to 5 percent of people with the disease have early onset Alzheimer's (also known as younger-onset), which often appears when someone is in their 40s or 50s. If you or someone you know is affected by Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, come learn the facts. Presented by the Alzheimer's Association, this program provides information on detection, risk factors, stages of the disease, treatments and more. This free class requires registration.

What's the latest things for kids and teens? LEGOs at the Library! These popular programs are now offered at eight Jefferson County Library locations, including Arvada, Belmar, Columbine, Conifer, Edgewater, Evergreen, Golden and Standley Lake. We provide the LEGOs® and the kids provide the energy and imagination. The end result? Fun and engaging practice in problem solving, design and building stuff.
From monthly meetings to individual events, it's likely we have a LEGO program to fit your needs. Times and locations.
The Golden Library cordially requests your presence for an afternoon fete. That's a fancy way of saying, “We’re having a tea party and you're invited!” Dress up in your fanciest clothes, bring a parent and join us for tea, snacks and fun! For ages 6-11.

We've been getting wonderful love letters from patrons.
Here are a few excerpts:
"...Through you and your stories, I have learned about myself and the world around me, excelled in nearly every area of school, and grown up inside your walls. Reading has always, and forever will be, a part of my life thanks to you. And for this reason I can say without any shame, regret, or self loathing, that I love reading, and I LOVE YOU. YES YOU. I am who I am today because of you and I would never want to be anyone else." -- Aspen B.
"...When I ask my 5 year grandson if he wants to go to the library....he always says with excitement....YES! He will always comment when we pass the library, "there's MY library". He knows where the frog is, knows that he can add to the libraries decorations by going to the craft table.....he knows his library is a special place for movies and books. He enjoys looking down tunnel to watch returned items cascade down belt, as he encourages me to watch them disappear, simple pleasure of sharing. How many of us get excited as we check out books all stacked together as the machine magically gives him each name..another simple pleasure of his. Yes, we big people sometimes overlook the simple pleasures in life that can be found at the library. Thanks to MY library..." -- Ines B.
"...I've never done this before. Written a love letter, I mean. You have done so much for me, whether it be self esteem help, new friendships, or help at school. Self image. A prominent part in any girl's life (and guys, too...) The books you have can range from non-fiction, to fantasy, to realistic fiction and so on. These books show normal chracaters changing the world. Even science books. I read them and realize that someone out there discovered the law of gravity, or a certain type of fish, even. These books prove that we, as people, can do anything. That, I think, is an important thing for everyone to know -- including myself. Because of you, I am happier, stable and much more confident...." -- Lily Stensland
