And, in case you were curious, the oldest book in our collection is the Life of Horace Greeley by James Parton, published in 1854.

What do you think of this list? Any surprises?

The sorters are coming! The sorters are coming!
You may have noticed some construction around the Belmar and Columbine Libraries recently and wondered what's going on. It's actually something pretty cool. We're installing automated book sorters that will enable us to better serve our patrons with faster check in of materials and reduced wait times for items.

Golden Library is up next beginning in April, with the Lakewood, Standley Lake, Arvada and Evergreen Libraries to follow.

Thanks for your patience while we make these changes. The book sorters are going to help us keep up with the growing demand and the circulation.

What is a sorter?
