Please meet Kylee and her younger brother Connor, two of my favorite regulars here at the Green Valley Ranch Library. They are both such avid readers that it’s not unusual to see them in the library more than once a week. Kylee and Connor also participated in our Summer of Reading Program this year, and since they always brighten my day, I couldn’t resist talking with them about their experience.
Kylee loves to read happy books in her room before bedtime to ward off any bad dreams. Her favorite book this summer was Wizard at Work, by Vivian Vande Velde. Connor likes to read in the living room and in the car (he obviously has no problems with car sickness). His favorite books to read this summer included Clifford and Magic Tree House.
Under the City’s commitment to sustainability, the Green Valley Ranch Branch Library is proud to announce that it has been designated to receive Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program.
The Gold Certification award is based on the library’s aggressive efforts to design, build and operate the facility in a sustainable way that helps to protect and enhance the environment. Denver’s commitment to sustainability is embodied in the Greenprint Denver initiatives, driven by a 2007 executive order which requires all buildings renovated or maintained with city funds to be designed, constructed, and operated according to principals outlined in the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED.
