Message from the Executive Director: 

Dear Library Supporter, 

I am Sherri Baca, and I was recently named the executive director of the Pueblo City-County Library District.  This new role is an exciting opportunity for me to help shape the public library and to lead our wonderful staff to continue to provide excellent library materials, services and library spaces.  

The future of the Pueblo Library is bright and promising! We have a bright future, in large part because of community support and steadfast community champions like you. Because of donations and tax revenues we are able to fully fund and complete a $12.5 million renovation of the Rawlings library.  The Rawlings renovation project refreshes the interior of this magnificent building which serves as a beacon of learning in the Pueblo community.  We invite you to visit the Rawlings Library, have a warm beverage at PJ’s Coffee, enjoy our new layout of library materials and visit the colorful and fun children’s area.  We have new collections of books that we are very proud of—collections sponsored by the Pueblo Chapter of the NAACP and the Arc of Pueblo.

I want to assure you that PCCLD is continually active, ensuring that we provide Pueblo County with the best possible public library experience. Through continual improvement to our facilities, community services and materials, we aim to serve our community in an impactful and vital way. The Pueblo Library continually works to provide programs and services that serve as great methods to show our community members that reading can be fun, impactful and life-changing. 

I am truly honored to serve as the Executive Director for PCCLD. I look forward to dedicating myself to providing the best possible public library to the citizens of Pueblo. I take great pride in this institution and I know that you do as well.  It is my wish to you that the rest of 2022 will bring blessings and other opportunities for discovery, learning, and reading. We invite you to visit the public library in your neighborhood, library staff will welcome you warmly at any Pueblo City-County Library location!


Sherri Baca
