The Building Campaign has remodeled the Main Library and will enlarge and remodel North Branch.


raised by 62 people

$300,000 goal

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 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 began 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 including two outdoor reading decks.
•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 March of 2022. If you haven't seen the improvements, please visit!   When you walk in, you will notice a brighter, more open, and user-friendly space.  There is a newly renovated children's area and brand new teen area.  Also you will find a new convenient main entrance.

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