Columbine Library Gives Back
Last month, Columbine Library staff raised $1,000 through a silent auction held during the Holiday Boutique. All items that were part of the auction were handmade by someone connected to Columbine Library and included quilts, cards, paintings, jewelry, pottery and knit items.

The money raised at auction was donated to the Tennyson Center for Children, which provides aid to abused, neglected and at-risk kids.
