Basalt to unveil new library

Aspen Times staff report
Aspen, CO Colorado

BASALT – The Basalt Library staff is urging the public to help out with the facility’s grand opening celebration Saturday.

Anyone interested should meet at the old library in Lions Park at 9 a.m. There will be a parade to the new facility by the post office, then a flag raising and ribbon cutting.

The full library staff will then be available to answer questions and demonstrate the new amenities and equipment inside. There will also be a scavenger hunt for kids.

The staff will be giving out reusable bags – for books, shopping, etc. – made from recycled pop bottles. Supplies are limited.
