Sunday we attended the Friend, Family event outside of Fairplay, Colorado for the Rocky Mountain Land Library. It was awesome. The mission is to preserve books about the West - books are stored in their Globeville ( Denver) warehouse and then brought up to the Buffalo Peaks Ranch for use in various ways. The goal will hopefully to be a lending library for Park County. Other ideas that are percolating would be a Residential Library where people could come in stay for a week or so and read to their heart’s content.
Jeff and Anne Lee are the organizers of the Land Library and both are fun people to talk to. They arranged with the Park County Creative Alliance to host this event. There were artists present to teach, music, and even a group of enactors showing what ranch life was like.
