Dear library supporters,

Throughout 2018, the Jefferson County Library has continued to transform lives, strengthen communities, and be an exciting center of lifelong learning in our county. However, we cannot do this alone – it is a community-wide effort supported by taxpayers, volunteers, donors, staff, partner organizations, and many others. To everyone who has contributed to the success of our library, we say a heartfelt “Thank you!”

The past few months have been busy at the Library – a few highlights include:

  • In early August we repaired, sealed, and re-painted our parking lot. This has improved both driving and safety conditions.
  • We changed the name of our consortium of libraries to better reflect who we are and where we are located. We are now known as the Cooperative Libraries of the Eastern Olympics, or CLEO. New blue library cards are available for those who might want them, but replacing old cards will not be required.
  • Our “Weird, Odd, and Wonderful” (WOW) collection of unusual items for checkout has been expanded to include a birding backpack, ODBII scanner to diagnose vehicle error codes, blood pressure monitor, and soldering iron. Have a request? We’d love to add more useful tools!

As we close out 2018 and turn our sights to the New Year, we want to thank you, our supporters, for everything you have done to make these successes possible. Because we know you value the library and its services, would you please consider a year-end gift to help us continue to make education, information, and cultural events accessible to everyone in Jefferson County? You can drop off a contribution at the library or donate online at:

Thank you for your generosity and support. Your gift ensures that the library will be there for you and your family and friends for generations to come!
