Libraries: Looking for a good read?

Daily file photo

It’s true. Many mountain folks would rather crack open a book than flip through hundreds of channels any day.

To serve the bibliophiles, Summit County has three libraries. The main one boasts cozy chairs facing an expansive mountain view. All have internet access, and Silverthorne even has a table to create magnetic poetry.

All branches open at 9 a.m. Monday through Thursday. Frisco stays open until 9 p.m., while Breckenridge and Silverthorne close at 7 p.m. Fridays, they all close at 5 p.m. On Saturdays, Breckenridge and Silverthorne are open from 1-5 p.m., and Frisco’s hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The only branch open on Sundays is Frisco, from 1-5 p.m.

To get a library card, you must have lived in Summit County for at least 30 days and present proof ” a driver’s license, rent receipt, lease or utility bill with your name on it will do.
