(Excerpts by Tom Potter for The Chronicle News)
Events at the Library
“Now, it’s your move.” The Trinidad Chess Club meets at 10 am every Saturday morning at the Carnegie Library, 202 N. Animas. “Anyone is welcome to come and participate in this ever-popular great brain challenge, and chess sets are provided for the group.”
“Up close and personal – Oral History Project.” A group of “fine folks” gathered at the Carnegie Public Library last Wednesday for the kickoff of the new Oral History Project which is designed to highlight local history and culture through personal stories about people, places and events.

“Country Western performer featured at Library.” Singer and song-writer Almeda Bradshaw presented “Songs of the West: Romance and Reality,” a solo performance of Bradshaw’s original music and poetry chronicling her journey from Oregon to her heartland Montana. “I had to move East to find the West…. All I wanted was to be a cowgirl.”
Just a few examples of the many creative opportunities happening at the historic library building these days.
