The collection is full of items of all kinds to discover – The Fort Morgan Times
With July 4th behind us, there is still a lot of summer left. If you need ideas to keep the kids busy, EMCL is for you.
We are constantly adding new titles every week to our collections. We have books, eBooks, DVDs, CD books, magazines, launch pads (for kids and adults), and Story Time activity bags, to get you started.
If you haven’t heard, we also have mobile hotspots, Xcel Energy energy meters, a wide variety of cake pans, kids’ puppets, craft bags, and Colorado backpacks. State Park available for control.
We’ve just added the following board games to check out for three weeks: Jenga, Connect 4, and Trouble.
If you decide to visit us, we have a variety of other items that can be picked up, but they must remain on the library grounds. These include sports balls, hop ball, checkers, chess pieces, sewing machines, phone chargers, and laptops.
If the kids get excited, we have a cute kids’ play area to drain some of that extra energy.
You can also do a Story Walk with them. The Story Walk starts at the front left entrance to the library and the story takes you through the library grounds and ends with the children’s play area.
We therefore hope to have piqued your interest and would be delighted to see you visit us soon.
Tentatively mark your calendars for the “Community Barbecue” located here in the library parking lot.

This week’s Staff Pick is from two popular writers who have once again collaborated to create a fast-paced thriller you can’t let go. “The President’s Daughter” was written by Bill Clinton and James Patterson. Here is a summary of their latest novel:
Matthew Keating, former Navy SEAL – and former president – has always stood up for his family as firmly as his country. Now these defenses are under attack. A madman kidnaps Keating’s teenage daughter Melanie, turning every parent’s deepest fear into a matter of national security. As the world watches in real time, Keating embarks on a one-man special ops mission that tests his strength: as leader, warrior, and father.
