In a few months, a group of parents in Colorado will celebrate the first anniversary of a landmark decision by a state court to grant them access to their kids’ local public library.
A state appeals court ruled the state’s ban on charter schools, known as “charter schools,” violated the Colorado Constitution.
The court upheld a 2014 decision by the Colorado Supreme Court to uphold the ban.
After the ruling, the state was forced to seek a new court ruling that would allow the children of charter schools to continue to receive the state-run public schools they attended.
At the same time, the county library in Hennepoort is planning to celebrate the 50th anniversary of its founding in July of 1916.
Hennepoord County Library and History Society says that anniversary has become an opportunity for its members to celebrate and reflect on the importance of a library and the people who made it what it is today.
“It’s a wonderful time for us to celebrate history and our history,” said Tim Gartrell, the group’s director of events and events.
As of Monday, Hennegoort had 1,749 library staff members.
Gartrel said that number is expected to increase in coming months.
For those interested in joining in on the celebration, Henna County is hosting a book signing on June 11.
