Library needs updating

Dear Editor:

I’m overjoyed with the new library plans. As I visit newer libraries, I realize more and more that the Pitkin County Library in Aspen needs to be updated. Every time we visit Aspen, our first stop is the library to get my daughters’ supply of books for our stay. That’s why I am especially focused on the plans for the new children’s room – moving to a better location on the main floor with its own storytelling area and an interactive learning center. It’s also reassuring to know that the safety and security of our children was of paramount importance in the design.

It’s heartening to know that the “Aspen idea” lives on, and I hope the community will continue to invest in the future of our children and our library.
