at Pikes Peak Library District
by Clarence Shivers
We welcome you to our new and improved website. We request you to kindly browser the various sections of our site which provides a glimpse into the history of the Shivers Fund which was started in 1993 with the inauguration of the Shivers African-American Historical and Cultural Collection at the Pikes Peak Library District.
It is true that the final five-day Shivers Celebration was held a few years, ago. However, the Shivers Fund and Concert Series will continue. We will continue to present individual concerts, contribute to the African-American collection at the library, award grants and scholarships to students and encourage young people who have an interest in the arts.
