Such a great night!

We’re thrilled to announce that October 20th’s Pie Factory Pop-up was an overwhelming success. Over 300 people turned out to explore the Rocky Mountain Land Library’s new urban home. The Puritan Pie Factory is a dream-come-true location for what will likely be the final link in the Land library’s Headwaters to Plains Network of place-based learning centers.

Here’s a slide show that starts with the very first day of clean-up at the Pie Factory. Thanks to Ben Sherrill, Stephen Shoup, and Wendy Campbell for capturing these fun days at the Pie Factory:

So much to clear & organize, followed by many days of clean-up….

Still using the industrial shelving in place, we finally tackled the happy task of unpacking books; putting some favorites on display, but all the while knowing we have more than 1,500 book boxes to go!

Slowly but surely the Pie Factory was transformed,

with wonderful books to enliven the space!

Our thanks goes to all the generous artists and class leaders that made our Silent Auction a success. Such a beautiful corner of this wonderful warehouse space!

Pie is good! We had 150 handheld pies, and over a dozen full-size pies — devoured with gusto by the end of the night. All the pies were kindly donated by wonderful community-minded businesses: Dawn Dennison & Crust, The Long i Pie Shop, and Five Points Pizza

Plus a delicious, over-the-top array of food that everyone sang the praises of — all from the kitchens of Chef Sterling Robinson from Billy’s Inn and North County.  We even had a few kegs of pie-inspired beer thanks to Alex Guest & Hopwares!

People (of all ages!) loved looking through the books!

And then there was the sea-foam Cadillac. You had to be there….
