September is national Library Card Sign-up Month, which is reminder for all members of the public how beneficial access to a library can be. To celebrate, Summit County Library is offering free library card replacements. Lost or damaged cards typically cost $2.50 to replace.

The library is also accepting donated food as payment for overdue fines through its Food for Fines program. From now through Sept. 18, canned goods, dried beans, baking supplies, personal care products and other nonperishables can be donated. 

Items will be donated to the Family & Intercultural Resource Center’s food bank.

As a Summit Daily News reader, you make our work possible.

Summit Daily is embarking on a multiyear project to digitize its archives going back to 1989 and make them available to the public in partnership with the Colorado Historic Newspapers Collection. The full project is expected to cost about $165,000. All donations made in 2023 will go directly toward this project.

Every contribution, no matter the size, will make a difference.
