New, gently used & out-of-print books for readers of all ages.

Friday November 15, 2019

Join us on Friday, November 15th at 7:00 for a reading by Niwot historian Anne Dyni, author f Niwot, Colorado: Birth of a Railroad Town and Around Niwot. The presentation will be followed by an author reception.
When the Colorado Central laid down tracks that hauled the freight of settlement along the base of the Rocky Mountain foothills, Niwot became Boulder County's first railroad town. Historian Anne Quinby Dyni has mined this charming community's heritage for over a decade, fetching forgotten stories for a new generation in her "Yesterday's News" column. Oral histories, diaries and early newspaper accounts of the past century bring to life more than seventy of her favorites--St. Vrain Valley pioneers, 1940s lost wedding traditions, the origin of "Gunbarrel" and many more.


Anne Quinby Dyni wrote her "Yesterday's News" column for the Left Hand Valley Courier for many years. As an oral history volunteer for Boulder, Colorado's Carnegie Branch Library for Local History, she has interviewed more than150 individuals, primarily as research for the four local history books and three videos she has written since moving to Boulder County in 1978. They include: Pioneer Voices of the Boulder Valley: An Oral History; Erie, Colorado: A Coal Town Revisited; Back to the Basics: The Frontier Schools of Boulder County; and DVDs entitled Prospecting the Prairie and Niwot, Colorado: Echoes of a Railroad Town.
