New Cedaredge librarian checks in

By Hank Lohmeyer

Alexis Nelson is the new manager at the Cedaredge Library.

She was introduced to the Cedaredge Town Board at a July 13 work session that was held in the library meeting room.

According to LaDonna Gunn with the Delta County Libraries, Nelson began her new job officially on Monday, July 17. She won't be seen regularly at the library, though, until she completes some training and orientation.

Nelson told the DCI that she and her husband come from Boulder and that they have relatives who live in this area.

Gunn also reported that activity attendance at the Cedaredge Library is growing. Also, there were 4,012 visits to the Cedaredge Library during June, she told the town trustees.

The Cedaredge Public Library Foundation, which owns the library building, has produced preliminary drawings for a building remodel and expansion, Gunn reported.
