Each year, Summit County Library staff and the board acknowledge the hard work of library volunteers.

  • Andrew Armour was named Volunteer of the Year. Armour, who volunteers at the South Branch Library, is always friendly with patrons, visitors and staff and willing to dive in whenever assistance is needed. Library staff appreciate his can-do attitude and the commitment he shows to Summit County Library. He helps with everything from shelving to setting up chairs for programs to cutting out crafts for story times. He always has a positive attitude and a smile on his face.
  • Kristina Nethaway earned the Van Woodford Service Award, which is named for the North Branch Library manager of more than 35 years. Library staff believe Nethaway embodies her commitment and dedication. Nethaway bought and installed bookshelves to help extend the life of the old South Branch Library and was instrumental in the move from old library to new, helping pack and place more than 1,000 boxes of books. She sorted and sold books at book sales, and served on the Friends of the Library, the Library Foundation and the Library Board of Trustees.

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.
