More than 1,000 people attended the grand opening of the Breckenridge Grand Vacations Community Center & South Branch Library on Saturday, Jan. 10. The event celebrated the culmination of more than 16 months of work to restore the building on Harris Street that was once a public schoolhouse.
The South Branch Library will officially open on Tuesday, Jan. 20, but Scott Vargo, assistant county manager for Summit County, said, for him, the overwhelmingly positive reactions he saw in all of the library spaces were highlights of the grand-opening evening.
"Everyone was so excited to see special spaces for each age group and so many wonderful spots to hang out to read or just relax," he said. "And I had lots of comments about how great it will be to have the meeting room space available for the public. And lastly, folks really like the feel/vibe of the coffee shop — myself included."
Vargo's comments echo the sentiments of the Grand Opening Marketing Committee, said Kim Dykstra, director of communications for the town of Breckenridge.
