• WELCOME TO CASTLE COLFAX LIBRARY!

    Once upon a time there lived a group of children in the magical land of Colfax. 

    Some were small and young and full of wonder.  Some were older and wiser. 
    Some were full of laughter and mischief.  But all of the children had one very important thing in common. 

    They were members of a royal family.  Once a week, they gathered together within Castle Colfax. 
    Under the protection of a fierce dragon, here they quested for knowledge and adventure. 

    And they lived happily ever after!
