For example, if you received a new Kindle, Nook, or other eReader, we have eBooks available for checkout through our OverDrive database. You just need a Garfield County library card number to get started. OverDrive has a Help menu that will take you to instructions (which are specific to your device) on how to download a book. In January, the Gordon Cooper, New Castle, and Rifle Branch Libraries will be hosting programs specifically designed to help anyone learn how to do this. There are also friendly, helpful staff members throughout the county who can assist you if you call or come in. If you got a smartphone or tablet for Christmas, you'll also find the library to be a great source of content and help. You still have access to OverDrive and all the items mentioned above. Plus, smartphones and tablets such as the iPad have apps specifically designed to make it quick and easy to download and read eBooks on the go. From a tablet you will also have full internet capabilities and can access the Garfield County Library website, www.gcpld.org. There you can renew books, check out the events calendar, and explore our incredible databases available. Young children will enjoy watching and listening to books with the Tumblebooks database, anyone wanting to learn a new language can access Mango Languages, and those who need auto repair help can take advantage of our subscription to Chilton's online database. The libraries also offer free Wi-Fi so you can go online with your device, even if you don't have a monthly connection plan. If you are a smartphone user, you can download our brand new app GCPLD 2 Go which has many features of our website in an easy-to-use mobile form. Have fun playing with your new tech toys. And remember, the libraries are here with great eBooks and help if you need it.

When she tells the story she recounts not knowing what she was "getting [herself] into" when she interviewed and had to take a typing test. Luckily for everyone around her, she did indeed get the job. In 1990, Judy became Branch Manager of the library and remained in that position for 21 years. Judy continually learns new techniques and embraces new technologies, and for seven of her years with the libraries she was also the webmaster for the Library District. When asked to share a few words about Judy, the staff in Rifle had a hard time narrowing it down. Assistant Branch Manager Zee Russell said continued on page 3...

The new library will have a parking structure underneath, and a second floor above owned by Colorado Mountain College (CMC). A second parking structure will be constructed at the corner of 9th and Cooper by the Glenwood Springs Downtown Development Authority and the City of Glenwood Springs. The project calls for a new 14,000 square foot library on the ground floor, a community plaza, and a second floor that will be unfinished, providing future expansion space for the library and CMC. The library will feature terrific children's and teen areas, a quiet reading room with a fireplace, four study rooms and a large community meeting room. The project is slated to break ground in April 2012. The District hired Willis Pember Architects and Humpries Poli Architecture to design the new library for Carbondale.

Book Recommendations from Staff Members by Lev Grossman The Magicians is the coming-of-age story of Quentin Coldwater, a self-described nerd who, as a high school senior, is still obsessed with the magical world described in his favorite childhood books. Quentin unexpectedly finds himself at a mysterious college where he discovers that magic is real and there is more to the world than meets the eye. Since its release, I've been recommending The Magicians to anyone who will listen, describing it as "Harry Potter for grown-ups." Really, though, it's more complex than that. The story is appealing on many different levels, whether you are hooked by the fascinating plotline, the multidimensional characters, or the imaginative settings. There are obvious parallels to J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series and C. S. Lewis' Narnia stories and hints of J. R. R. Tolkien's Middle Earth, L. Frank Baum's Oz, and even Madeleine L'Engle's A Wrinkle in Time. But, I found Grossman's voice to stand apart as smart and very funny. While the influence of those earlier authors was clearly apparent, I often felt that Grossman was not giving a nod to those authors so much as he was giving the reader a cheeky (and sometimes snarky) wink. I highly recommend The Magicians, even if you don't usually read in the fantasy genre. -Malia Burton, Administration The Magicians by Connie Willis This is a science fiction book for people who might think they don't like sci-fi. While Willis is the winner of many notable science fiction awards, including eleven Hugo Awards and seven Nebula Awards, this book reads like a romantic comedy. Connie is a Colorado author, and this endearing, charming novel takes place in Boulder. The main character, Sandra Foster, is a scientist in Research and Development at HiTek, a fictional research company. Sandra is plagued by an incompetent, insufferable office assistant named Flip who misdelivers packages, throws months of research in the garbage, and generally causes trouble wherever she goes. Due to Flip delivering an important package to the wrong office, Sandra meets Dr. O'Reilly, a mysteriously geeky yet charming fellow scientist at HiTek. Dr. O'Reilly is studying information transfer in animals, and his experiment is nearly a complete loss when Flip loses his funding request form. Will Dr. O'Reilly lose his job? Will Dr. O'Reilly and Sandra end up together? Find out in the pages of this charming, funny novel that happens to take place in the world of Science. -Amy Shipley, Administration Bellwether ...Update from Director (cont.) development, and we have hosted two community meetings with a third scheduled for January 12th. Special emphasis will be placed on engaging community artisans to contribute to the project. The new library will be a 13,000 square foot facility at the corner of Sopris and Third Avenue. We hope to break ground by next summer, with a completion date of mid-2013. Currently the project includes an outdoor reading patio, three study rooms, a joint community room/quiet reading area, and special children's area. The Mount Sopris Historical Society is exploring the possibility of creating a time capsule as part of the project. Watch their web site for more information at www.mtsoprishistoricalsociety.org. The project will be bid out for construction in the late spring. We are committed to providing safe and efficient facilities and are working to ensure that overall operational costs for the District remain low as we expand our facilities to meet the library needs of the future. We are putting special emphasis on green features and energy efficiency. Check out how our new buildings are doing at garfieldenergynavigator.org. The libraries are excited to announce the Food for Fines program will return during the month of February.

Last February there were 3,297 items collected by the libraries! Meet Your Librarian Karol Sacca Branch Manager Parachute Branch Karol Sacca is an addict...yep, that's right: she's addicted to books, always has been, and always will be she freely admits. A Colorado native, she grew up reading anything the town library had in stock. The love of literature led her to a teaching career and eventually into the school library. Her career there spanned over 30 years. After retiring several years ago, Karol joined the Parachute Branch Library as the manager. In the past three years she and her team saw the old library completely remodeled and reopened to record breaking business. The library is a showcase for the community, and the community room is in high demand. Karol and her husband of 44 years, Larry, moved to the Grand Valley over ten years ago when they located some acreage and an old farm house in need of tender loving care. "We bought the place to keep my husband busy, and that it has, with a massive garden and a herd of deer and turkeys that eat everything that is not protected." While at home Karol loves to quilt and is a professional longarm quilter. "Every quilt tells a story and working on them makes me part of that story. I come from a long line of quilters. Both my grandmother and mother were quilters. I happen to mix technology into the art form by adding machine quilting. The hours I spend quilting are times for me to listen to a wide variety of books on tape." Karol is the mother of two grown daughters: Stephanie, a teacher in Minturn, CO, and Emily, a nurse in Oklahoma. Karol's pride and joy are her four grandchildren who allow her to read aloud many of the books that arrive in the library. Love books? Need to find that perfect read? Stop in the Parachute Branch Library, and you might find yourself addicted too! Check your cupboards or head to the grocery store because this program is the perfect opportunity for you to take care of those pesky fines, while also helping out people in your local community. ...Judy Martens Retires (cont.) "Judy has been the most patient teacher for me at the Rifle Branch Library. She allowed me to ask questions...repeatedly, until the answer stuck in my brain. I have learned so much from her these last 9+ years and it has empowered me to be able to help others!" Malia Burton, the Library District's Digital Services Librarian said "Judy has been a dedicated coworker that I enjoyed working with, but also a friend, sewing tutor, cooking advisor, and adopted grandmother to my kids. I looked forward to seeing Judy whether I was at work or at the library with my kids for Storytime. For my son, going to the library meant getting hugs from Judy and showing her the books he'd picked out." Indeed, what has set Judy apart all these years has been her caring and her personal touch. She has given advice on what to read, answered countess questions, and inspired so many. Thank you Judy for all you have done for the people of Rifle, and of Garfield County. We wish you well with your next adventure.
