GLENWOOD SPRINGS – For the second year in a row, Garfield County Libraries was one of 10 public library systems in Colorado to receive a Library and Services Technology Act Grant. Garfield County Libraries’ $20,000 grant award will help support “The Fifth Element,” a new enrichment program that will offer free services to Re-2 students.

“The Fifth Element” will offer two-hour classes taught by Re-2 teachers on math, science, art and music at the New Castle, Silt and Rifle branch libraries. Garfield County will offer two sessions every Friday afternoon: one for kindergartners through second-graders and one for third- and fourth-graders, starting Oct. 26.

Participants can expect a high-quality, interactive program. Each class will be limited to 25 students, on a first-come, first-served basis. Parents can call the library or go online to preregister for this program, starting Oct. 12.
