Steamboat briefs: Coffee and a Newspaper event to focus on housing

Members of the Community Housing Steering Committee, an advisory committee sanctioned by the Steamboat Springs City Council and Routt County Board of Commissioners, will be the featured guests at this month’s Coffee and a Newspaper, slated for 7:30 to 9 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 3, at the Steamboat Pilot & Today offices, 1901 Curve Plaza.

The group has recently recruited community members to serve on four working groups, which will be tasked with analyzing all housing segments through a supply and demand lens, along with the obstacles to housing and potential solutions or opportunities.

Publisher Suzanne Schlicht and Editor Lisa Schlichtman will host the event, which is free and open to the public.

Coffee and pastries will be served.

Summer readers slated to be celebrated at library

What do gelato, juggling and jumping have in common? They will all be part of the end-of-the-summer reading celebration at 2 p.m. Sunday, July 31, at Bud Werner Memorial Library in Steamboat Springs.

All readers who participated in the Summer Reading Challenge or Wee Reader Program are invited to the event, which will be held on the library lawn. There will be juggling entertainment by We’re Not Clowns, a bounce house from Steamboat Fun Jumps, free ice cream from Ciao Gelato, a book swap and the 50 Spot Challenge Gift Basket giveaway.

All are welcome, and any reader who read every day for 50 days will be recognized. 

For the book swap, bring one or two gently used children’s books to swap with other kids.
