Avalanches and Library Events

Golden Beer Talks

Tonight’s Golden Beer Talk features Rick Grubin discussing avalanches.

Avalanches can happen to those skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, hiking, driving, hunting, bike riding, and more. If you live, work, or recreate in snowy mountains, you need to learn about avalanches – it may save your life, or enable you to provide important information for friends and family members likely to benefit.

Avalanches kill an average of 42 people each year in North America, and hundreds more are injured. This talk provides vital coaching from the Know Before You Go (KBYG) program, bolstered by the extensive field experience of our speaker, Rick Grubin.

Beer Talks take place at Windy Saddle Café, 1110 Washington Avenue.  The speaker will start at about 6:30, but you can arrive earlier if you want to nail down a table.  Tonight’s beer is coming from Mountain Toad!

Tomorrow afternoon, the Library is hosting a Fancy Nancy party for 3-9 year olds.  Please register if you want to attend.

Tomorrow night, they have an author visit from 6-7.
