Movie night! Please join us at 5:30 pm at the Gunnison Library on Friday, January 26 for the first installment of an all-new Page to Screen Series at the library. These FREE movie screenings are a celebration of books that have inspired on-screen adaptations. For January’s installment we will be screening Little Women, originally written by Louisa May Alcott and adapted to film (most recently, that is) in 2019 by Greta Gerwig. Copies of the book are also available near the circulation desk. Rated PG | 2h 15m Free & open to the public
Gunnison Valley is also host to several beloved annual events. A classic winter event is The Alley Loop, a Nordic ski race that doubles as a costume contest. In fall, Mt. Crested Butte hosts the famous Chili and Beer Festival. Every summer in Gunnison, a crowd gathers to watch America’s fourth-oldest rodeo, Cattlemen’s Days. There are also festivals in Crested Butte that celebrate local art, music, wildflowers, and more. Attending an annual event is a good way to connect with the culture of the Gunnison Valley. You might even create a new tradition for you and your family and friends!
