Find out more about Pikes Peak Library District here:
Pikes Peak Library District (PPLD) is a nationally recognized system of public libraries serving a population of more than 535,000 in El Paso County, Colorado. With fourteen facilities, online resources, and mobile library service, PPLD responds to the unique needs of individual neighborhoods and the community at large.

PPLD has an employee base of 427 full- and part-time staff, and utilizes roughly 1,400 volunteers. It strives to reach all members of the community, providing free and equitable access to information and an avenue for personal and community enrichment.

In 2008, PPLD was rated 9th in the country among library systems serving populations greater than 500,000. Volume of circulation, number of visits, and hours of access contribute to the ranking. PPLD is also recognized for its commitment to diversity, its quality programming, and its excellent customer service.

The history of public libraries in the region began in October 1885 when the Colorado Springs Social Union established a library on the corner of Tejon and Cucharras Streets in downtown Colorado Springs. In 1905, a new library opened at 21 West Kiowa Street with funds donated by Andrew Carnegie and land granted by General William Jackson Palmer.

In 1962, a majority of the citizens of El Paso County voted to establish a special taxing district and PPLD was formed. The District serves all of El Paso County except Widefield School District 3.

About the author

Bette Lee Crosby

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures." Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down." "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. She has since gone on to win nineteen awards for her work; these include: TheRoyal Palm Literary Award, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal, Reader's Favorite Award Gold Medal, and the Reviewer's Choice Award.
