Summer Reading has come to an end in Powell for 2019. Your librarians would like to thank every individual and business who donated prizes, money, and time to making this another successful year. Our Friends of the Powell Branch Library and the Park County Library Foundation are huge supporters of the summer reading program each year. We can’t thank them enough for what they do for the library. Every child, teen, and adult who participated made strides towards maintaining or improving their reading skills and comprehension. Good job, Powell! You are an amazing community and we love being your librarians!
