Canceled - Open Studio & Limited Shop Access
In response to recommendations from Boulder County Public Health, and as a safety precaution to protect the community from the spread of the coronavirus, the City of Boulder will close all age well centers, libraries, recreation centers and the Ranger Cottage starting at 3 p.m. today, Friday, March 13. These closures and cancellations are in place until March 29, 2020, as more widespread testing becomes available and we can learn more about the spread of COVID-19.
Flatirons Golf Course, Boulder Reservoir and city parks will remain open for self-directed activities and continue to practice strong sanitation practices. Open Space and Mountain Parks (OSMP) trails also will remain open.
All programs, services and outreach activities are canceled. Please do NOT return any library materials until April 30. All closures will remain in place until March 29, at which time we will reassess the situation. Additional information is available online.
Please check our calendar for future classes. Thank you for understanding.
