The Community Library is returning to it’s normal schedule today, opening from 12:00 to 8:00pm. Our scheduled event is on, a free movie at 6:00 pm, The World Before Her, a winner of the World Documentary Competition at the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival.
The outlook on the Beaver Creek Fire is more positive today, and some evacuation orders have been reverted to pre-evacuation status in some of the hardest hit areas of the fire–Croy Creek Canyon, Timber Gulch, Greenhorn Gulch included.
There are still some problem areas on the fire, and a red flag warning persists due to winds possible thunderstorms through this evening and into tomorrow. Please drive cautiously–there are firefighters and wildlife on all county roads. Most businesses in the Ketchum/Sun Valley and Hailey corridor are open and returning to normal as quickly as possible.
Thank you, firefighters! This photo shows the early stages of the fire a week ago–the plume from the headwaters of Deer Creek was thick enough to bring twilight to midday. Today, however, the air and skies are clear over Ketchum as we ready for our noontime opening.
New books, CDs, and DVDs are in, waiting for you @The Community Library!
