Recap of Recent Events
Sip, Shop and Swap
The Friends of the Library Foundation sponsored our second Sip, Shop, and Swap event at Words of Windsor on March 14. We had so much fun - seeing friends old and new as well as sharing good books. Thank you to Sam at Words of Windsor.
The Friends and Foundation of the Clearview Library has been very busy since the beginning of the year.
Our 2022 "Kathy Murphy Speaker Series" on April 22nd featured Nina Jones Kunze, a local Colorado author. Nina shared highlights and insights of her book, "Anna Wolfrom Dove and the Wigwam Tea Room". Anna was a single woman homesteader in Estes Park who ran a Tea Room that was a Rocky Mountain gem in Estes Park. Nina’s carefully researched account of this remarkable woman and her contributions that helped shape Estes Park lured many local history buffs to attend as well as those who love Estes Park, Rocky Mountain Park and, women’s history and tea!
The Arts & Heritage Center hosted Nina's historical talk; afterwards, High Tea with plated confections (from Windsor Lake Coffee) was served with attendees enjoying conversation, getting their books signed and meeting the author.
