It's appropriate the HS teams are known as the Canon City Tigers...you can call us Home of the Cat-herders! (try organizing a group of cats)

here's an update on library renovations:
'It's a 'we' thing' - Canon City Daily Record

Looks like the citizens banded together and are going to get something done!

Don't misunderstand what I'm saying, because I think all communities should have public library services. But I also wonder if things have changed and that may be why public attitude is changing. There are times when I go to our public library here in COS, and there are few patrons than in the local Barnes & Noble. Is America more into buying books now, than borrowing them from the library. I have to admit I am.

I have an entire wall full of bookshelves. When I get new ones, I have to get rid of something old. For those reasons I've stopped buying books and make better use of the PPLD here in COLO SPGS, which IMO is superb.
