The new Gypsum Public Library opened to readers on June 27th.

Gypsum, Colorado is now home to a new 10,000 square foot public library. The ‘library’ initially started as a handful of children’s books in the trunk of a car in 1995, but it finally received its proper opening on June 27th to the tune of 550 patrons.

Previously located in Town Hall, the new free-standing space allows the library to offer more programs and services to the public. There are three meeting rooms and a program room located inside the library, along with separate adult, teen, and kids sections.

Not only is the space twice as big as the previous location, but the library now offers 30 percent more books for the public’s enjoyment.

The total cost for the library was $1.2 million, which was split between the Eagle Valley Library District and the Town of Gypsum.
