Moving time for the Creek Library.

7-15boxed up library books web

The Franklin Ferguson Memorial Library, located next to the Cripple Creek High School, is looking for a new home and many boxes of books are already being assembled in preparation for a move to a new facility. Recently, the Southern Teller County Library District board rejected a contract with the RE-1 School Board due to what they viewed as unacceptable terms. The city of Cripple Creek is trying to mediate the controversy, which is now in the hands of attorneys from all three entities. Unless the dispute is resolved, the library could be leaving the school district by the end of the month. Photo by Rick Langenberg
