Thanks so much to Otero County Electric Co-op for the $2,500 grant. The Capitan Public Library was able to use this grant to have several workshops from October thru March. These workshops were well attended and were set up by Pearl Tippen of the Library. She set up Writer's Workshops such as - Drama Workshops, Music, Fabric Painting and Drawing Workshops. We greatly appreciate Pearl's efforts and the wonderful grant from Otero County Electric Co-op.
