What is the spirit animal of your company? OWL

Best part of being part of our community?

We love offering new opportunities to the community and doing so alongside partners who can match our creativity and innovation.  An example of this is the partnership with Mesa County which is opening a new community campus in Clifton that includes the new Clifton Library (3270 D 1/2 Road).  Another example is having Grand Valley Connects staff working out of the Central Library to help people get needed community human services resources.  They help fill out applications, make appointments, and know who to call!

How CommWest has been your technology partner? 

CommWest is incredibly supportive and responsive to our telecom needs! The Library District has been with CommWest for more than 10 years and has grown as we’ve grown. With 8 separate library branches, our phone network needs can get complicated and CommWest keeps us running. The CommWest team is always friendly, quick, and professional. When we have an issue, CommWest makes it easy to reach out and brainstorm options. CommWest is an outstanding technology partner!
