Trails of Grant County


Patricia Taber, Joe Kenneally, and Andrew Lindlof worked with the Grant County Community Health Council to create a guide to the trails of Grant County.  A print copy of the guide is available to view and photocopy at the library information desk.  You can view a PDF of the guide here (12.03MB download).  This project was funded by the Freeport-McMoRan community enhancement fund and created in collaboration with Prescription Trails New Mexico, the Grant County Trails Group, and Healthy Kids Healthy Communities Grant County.  You can learn more about the guide and the Grant County Trails Group by reading this Gila Resources Information Project blog post.  The Grant County Trails Group also produced a trails video last year.  Check it out!

The link to the trail guide PDF is also posted on our Health Resources page.  Check out all our resources pages to find lots of helpful links!  These links and much more are also posted to the library Delicious account.

Youth DIY – Water Blasters

Youth DIY will be this Friday, June 6, from 2:00 to 4:00pm  here at the library.  We will be creating our own water blasters out of PVC pipe.  The instructions can be found on the Popular Science website, and are also posted on our Youth page.  The design is slightly adjusted from this one on Instructables.  We’ll have enough equipment to make four water blasters in teams.  We’ll have a drawing to see who gets to take one home.
