Trustees Approve Grants


El Pomar trustees recently approved 42 grants totaling $628,500 that will serve 23 counties across Colorado.

Grants ranged from providing general operating support in human services to a $10,000 capital grant to install an Interactive Early Learning space in the children’s area of the new Garfield County Public Library.

The children’s room will include wall-mounted interactive panels with tactile and pre-literacy elements that will provide an early introduction to letters, numbers, and shapes. The Garfield County Public Library District covers an area almost 3,000 square miles and serves more than 56,000 residents in Garfield County.
