SUMMIT COUNTY -- Summit County Libraries will celebrate “The Next Chapter” in the story of its libraries, with the reopening of its Main Library in Frisco on Saturday, March 26 from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. The facility has been closed for seven months for an extensive remodel. The reopening will include live music and children’s entertainment.

“We want the community to see how their ideas for the library have translated into a fantastic, new space with beautiful vistas,” said Stephanie Ralph, Summit County Library Director. 

The modernized Main Library features a dedicated library entrance, integrated technology, designated areas for children and teens, quiet study and meeting rooms, bright colors and comfortable seating, as well as an expanded collection to accommodate the needs of Summit County’s increasingly diverse community. 

The new teen room, which includes fun furniture and its own library collection, is one of the highlights of the remodel, and the first step toward the Library’s plan to develop a wider range of teen programs and activities. 

“We are excited to offer teens a space where they can study or socialize,” Ralph said. 

Schedule of Events on March 26

  • 11 a.m. --12 p.m. Live Music
  • 11:30 a.m. Storytime with library staff
  • 1 p.m. Storyteller/Juggler
  • 2 p.m. Storytime with library staff

All Day:

  • Children’s Craft Area: Make a Bookmark 
  • Button Making for all ages
  • Teen Room: X-Box and Teen Scavenger Hunt 
  • Door prizes raffle each hour: library tote bags & travel mugs
  • Friends and Foundation table with naming rights information/authors circle membership

The needs of the community and technological advances have changed drastically in the 25 years since the Main Library moved to its current location at the County Commons, and the facility was due for an upgrade. The remodel is part of Summit County Libraries’ Capital Campaign – a $4.5 million project which includes the renovation and expansion of the North Branch, in Silverthorne. Summit County allocated $2.7 million to the building project, including $900,000 from Strong Futures, and the Summit County Library Foundation has organized a fundraising project to raise the remaining $1 million. 

Construction for the North Branch project is scheduled to begin this summer.
