Grimes Public Library Celebrates Service to its Community

[slideshow_deploy id=’75445′]

On Tuesday, February 16, 2016, Colusa County Library hosted an Open House at the Grimes Library Branch.  Volunteers, library staff, members of the Friends of the Library Association and branch patrons gathered as part of a year long Centennial Celebration of the Colusa County Library.

Library aide, Juana Rodriguez, toured new visitors around the library while she assisted patrons who were engaged in reading or accessing the internet using their own device or the computers available in the branch.

Light refreshments were served and the group enjoyed discussing library matters and learning about the architectural design of the building and other little known facts relating to the library from volunteer, Rose Ann Ellis, who retired from her position as Branch Librarian in 2015 after 37 years of service.

Patrons of the library have access to many resources at their local libraries.

County Librarian, Stacey Costello, addressed the group and said, “There is a lot going on in our libraries. People need to come use it. This is their taxpaying money at work.”

The open house was the fourth in a series of seven that will take place this year to celebrate the Centennial.  Princeton, Stonyford, and Arbuckle will hold open house events at their branches and a cumulative event is being planned now.

County residents can access available services and resources at the Grimes branch on Tuesday and Thursday 1:30 PM to 5:30 PM, Wednesday 8:30 AM to 11:30 AM.  The branch can be reached by telephone at (530) 437-2428.
