The Town of Parker and Douglas County Libraries (DCL) will celebrate the next chapter of their partnership on Tuesday, Oct. 21, at 10:30 a.m., as they continue to build for the future of the Parker community. The public is invited to the We Dig Books celebration, which will take place on the building site of the new Parker Library, located on the northwest corner of Mainstreet and Pine Drive, just across from Parker Town Hall.
Our youngest community guests will enjoy Storytime, snacks and the opportunity to dig for special gifts before Parker mayor Mike Waid and DCL director Bob Pasicznyuk escort our small citizens to the future library site, where they will be able to have their pictures taken with a large construction vehicle.
“We’re very excited to introduce our town’s new library and planned site amenities to the community with this fun event,” said Waid. “It’s a great opportunity to help people visualize not only the building and park, but the benefits they will provide for generations to come.”
Graphics and diagrams of the proposed Parker Library, as well as the planned surrounding park area, will be on display, and local dignitaries will share a few words before the Storytime celebration commences.
“The new library will be a physical representation of the Parker community’s heritage and involvement in the building project,” added Pasicznyuk. “We want to share our enthusiasm for the project with the community that’s helping make it possible.”
DCL also invites the public to an open house at its current Parker location (10851 S. Crossroads Dr.), from 1-6 p.m., Tuesday, October 21. The drop-in event will feature floor plans, 3-D models, design details and light refreshments. Similar events will be held at DCL locations in Castle Pines (7437 Village Square Dr., #110) on Wednesday, October 29, 2-6 p.m., and Lone Tree (8827 Lone Tree Pkwy.) on Monday, November 3, 2-6 p.m. No registration is required.
