The Library has an unexpected art collection, terrific old Denver pictures, has unique architecture, and of course, a great collection of books.

“Vast Blast from the 50's Past”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

Built sometime in the fifties when architecture was not at it's most awesome... but a must see in terms of functional use of a vast amount of space.

Music rooms, childrens reading rooms, magazine & newspaper rooms... you get the point.

I wish we had a library like this near me.

It is in the same complex (next door) to the Denver Art Museum so its a don't miss opportunity. The staff is so friendly and helpful. They will even offer to call a cab for you & smile about it!

The NYC Public Library it is not, but it is charming in it's own 50's kind of way.

Highly recommend~

“Nice pit stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

Great location. A great stop if you need a break to sit and read or if you are just in the area. There is a lot to see and do around the library, you can make a whole day of it

“A Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2014

Most people probably don't think of stopping in at the local library, but the Denver Library is definitely worth a peek. Go up to the upper floors and check out the artwork and genealogy section- it's amazing what you can discover in just a short period of time. It's fun to look at the old maps, too.
