 The Summit County libraries in Frisco and Silverthorne were built at a time when Summit County's needs and the role of the local library were vastly different. Changes in population and expanding technology, paired with the expanding social, educational, and economic roles of modern libraries, are severely limited with facilities designed for the past.  Our on-going Building Campaign is an effort to ensure that the Summit County community can continue to count on the library as a literary, educational, technological, and social center for Summit County in the decades to come. 

The expansion and remodel of North Branch in Silverthorne, Colorado will begin after August 2022. The North Branch has moved to temporary facilities at the Bluebird Market in Silverthorne. Some features of the North Branch project include:
•Modernize and expand the library by 4,900 square feet, helping us meet the growing demand for space and resources.
•Build more community meeting rooms and study rooms for all ages and our increasingly linguistically and culturally diverse community.
•Provide expanded outdoor spaces.
•Expand children's reading and creative areas and provide dedicated areas for teens.
•Accessible, flexible, and sustainable design providing a comfortable and safe interior
•Integrated technology.

     The Main Library in Frisco finished the remodel in early 2022. If you haven't seen the improvements, check it out!   When you walk in, you will notice a brighter, more open, and user-friendly space.  There is a dedicated children's area and teen area.  Also you will find a convenient new main entrance.

There are three ways for the people of Summit  to make a significant contribution to the future of the Summit County Library.
