Stand up for our community's public library

 
August 30, 2022

The Boundary County Library has been an exceptional resource for this community since the formation of the Boundary County Free Library District in 1956. Outstanding leadership and amazing employees have served the library since its inception in its mission to serve our community.

The excellence of our library has been recognized at the national level numerous times.

First Lady Laura Bush presented the library with one of the prestigious Institute of Museum Library Services’ National Awards for Museum and Library Service in 2002. Longtime Director Sandy Ashworth was nominated by President Bush to serve on the National Commission on Libraries and Information Science.

The Boundary County Library was named the best small library in America by Library Journal magazine in 2017 while Craig Anderson was director. Current director Kimber Glidden continues the legacy of making the library an invaluable resource for all members of our community.

A board of five trustees guides the library, and their service has been instrumental to the success of our library. The current and past trustees are pillars of our community, serving our library with integrity.

The trustees are elected, but they receive no compensation. They are true public servants, donating their time and efforts to make the library an incredible asset for our community.

Currently there is an effort to attack the library and recall four of the trustees.

We oppose this attempt to remove the very people who have helped make our library a local and national treasure. Instead, we should be grateful for their service in this challenging time.

Please join us in supporting the library trustees so they can continue their excellent service to our community.
