Presentation of Rotary of Parker Donation to DCL

Cherry Creek Valley Rotary Club president Emily Strunk presents a check to Douglas County Libraries Director Bob Pasicznyuk.

The Cherry Creek Valley (CCV) Rotary of Parker on Wednesday became the first organization to lend its name to the new Douglas County Libraries (DCL) building under construction in Parker. The Rotary donated $10,000 to the project, and the club’s name will grace the Fusion media lab planned for the new library.

Library representatives were on hand at the Rotary’s monthly meeting to accept the donation. “This is a very fun group, and we’re so happy that they’re able to contribute to the new library,” said Elaine McCain, donor relations specialist at DCL.

Joy Collins of CCV Rotary echoed McCain’s sentiments. “We are one of the library district’s many supporters,” she said. “We are so excited about this opportunity to continue our focus on youth and literacy, and to help fulfill our commitment to enhancing the downtown Parker area.”

The Fusion lab is a digital creativity space featuring technology for creating short films, videos, animation and music, and for other things, such as digitizing photos and old home videos.

Other naming opportunities are available for new libraries being built in Parker, Castle Pines and Lone Tree. For more information, contact Elaine McCain at emccain@dclibraries.org or 720-348-9509.
