I am pleased to present the Colorado State Library’s annual report of activities and programs for the state’s library staff and residents. It is an honor to be part of such a talented and dedicated staff here at the CSL.
We accomplished much in fiscal year 2017, in alignment with our goals of learning for all, serving to the underserved, offering professional development for library staff, and allocation of library resource. Working in partnership with other agencies, we coordinated literacy programs, delivered reading materials to those with reading impairments, helped those in state institutions connect with families through literature, offered free books to four-year olds and State Park backpacks for check out. We made available Colorado’s state agency publications and supported libraries through research, data, job search tools, and so much more. Of course, helping libraries improve their collections through the State Grants to Libraries is always a highlight.
