The Celebration will begin at 10AM Saturday at our new library building located at 320 Sopris Avenue. We will have refreshments and live music throughout the day.

The Greater Carbondale community is invited to come out and be part of the Grand Opening Celebration this Saturday, July 20th beginning at 10 AM. The new, full service, 13,000 square foot community library will feature state of the art services including wireless internet and public access computers. There will be public art displays throughout the interior and exterior. Jaywalker Lodge is honored to be one of the sponsors of the stunning “Pillars of Light” glass mosaic entryway panels. This permanent installation is a community art project directed by local artist, Shannon Muse of Paradise Art Glass.

The Men of Jaywalker have had the opportunity to be part of the incredible volunteer effort to help with the transition to the new library building. Last week about a dozen Jaywalker alumni spent the day helping disassemble, move, and reassemble shelving for the new facility. We, at Jaywalker, are proud to be part of this community and all of its great resources.

With Gratitude,

Mark Kloster
