Your Garfield County Libraries are seeking nominations for the second annual Lisa Detweiler Service Award.

This award is given in honor of Lisa Detweiler who worked for the Garfield County Libraries at the New Castle Branch Library for five years. Nominees should reflect Lisa’s determination to welcome and serve our diverse communities and her commitment to fulfill our communities’ needs.
