Friday Fun Fact

I’m a lifetime lover of libraries, and I just can’t say enough about our Poudre River Public Library District. Congratulations to the Council Tree branch for being the first commercial interior library in the U.S. to receive LEED® Platinum Certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) “is the nation's preeminent program for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings.” Read all about it on the library’s news page.

Today’s Friday Fun Fact: The Council Tree Library is named for a local cottonwood with long and interesting history. The actual council tree is no longer with us, but you can find its story here.






Mystery Photo:

Brett was right--last week's photo was the horse statue outside Coopersmith's.





















Where in Fort Collins was this week's picture taken?
