Database Demo Day success

Dear Editor: The staff of the Pitkin County Library would like to thank the community for their generous support of our Database Demo Day event last month.There were many individuals and groups who contributed to the day’s success. We considered it a high compliment to have The Aspen Times, Comcast and KSNO co-sponsor the event. In addition to the demonstrations given by national database companies, the City of Aspen and Pitkin County also had representatives on hand, sharing their knowledge of their Web-based resources. Several organizations, including the Aspen Skiing Co., Colorado Mountain College, the county manager’s office, the Cantina and the St. Regis, graciously loaned the library much needed supplies and equipment. Bill Dinsmoor and the rest of the Aspen Central Core and Lodging group supported promotion of the event as well.Those who provided professional services did so with the above-and-beyond spirit that, along with the scenery, helps make this valley a special place. Last but certainly not least, individuals from the community who attended were active participants, asking insightful questions and expressing genuine interest in learning about our online services. We had an impressive turnout, with approximately 450 people attending.In the weeks following, we have received many positive comments. We hope that the members of our community will continue to take advantage of the wonderful world of online databases their library cards make available to them, and to always ask the library staff for assistance when they need it!

Aspen rugby returns home after long absence, routs Vail on Wagner


Playing at home for the first time in nearly two years, the Gentlemen of Aspen Rugby Club overcame an apparent lack of size compared to the Vail side en route to a 49-14 win on Saturday at Wagner Park in downtown Aspen. Prior to hosting Vail, the Gents hadn’t played at home since Ruggerfest in the fall of 2019.
