From the Broomfield Enterprise (Joe Rubino):

In Broomfield, Mamie Doud Eisenhower Public Library and Environmental Services are leading the Colorado Water 2012 charge. Having already hosted a well-attended class about Xeriscape gardening — the practice of planting native and other water-thrifty plants to limit irrigation needs — Shirley Garcia, Broomfield Environmental Services coordinator, said the city has numerous other water-friendly classes planned this summer…

While Environmental Services and the Parks Department focus on ways to practice water conservation, staff at the library are taking on another side of the Colorado Water 2012 campaign: Awareness. The library next month will host a trio of programs dedicated to emphasizing the historical and ongoing importance of water in Colorado, including an expected May 6-19 visit from the traveling Colorado Water 2012 display…

Reference librarian Cindy Eubank is heading up the water projects at the library. The Water 2012 exhibit, when coupled with a May 8 screening of the film “The American Southwest: Are We Running Dry?” and a photo exhibit documenting the effects the Dust Bowl had on Colorado farmers in the 1930s, should be eye-opening, Eubank said.
