On Saturday May 17, Byers Branch Library collaborated with 411 BIKE PIT! to present the MOVE FREELY BICYCLE EVENT. People of all ages and varying biking experience gathered on the lawn to learn about basic bicycle maintenance. 411 BIKE PIT! provided a zine titled "Move Freely" which served as a handy guide to the workshop.

Ride for Reading

Denver Public Library is proud to be a part of Ride for Reading Week, 2014! We’ll be teaming up with Colorado Women’s Cycling Project to promote literacy and healthy living in Colorado by donating books via bicycle to children at Fulton Academy, a Title 1 school in Aurora.

DPL Connect, our pedal-powered mobile library, will join over 100 cyclists to deliver more than 3000 books by bike for this year’s Colorado delivery! And you are cordially invited to ride with us. 

Library Named 'Bicycle-Friendly Business' by BikeDenver.org

Enter the secured employee bike room parking at the Central Library, and you'll understand how much bike commuting is part of the Library's culture. You'll find it packed with commuter bikes every day of the year.

Whether we're mopping our sweaty brows in the heat of the summer, or bundling up for our dark, cold winter rides, Denver Public Library employees LOVE being in the saddle.

DPL Connect: Denver's very own pedal-powered mobile library!

Over the past few months, the Denver Public Library has been developing a new service to connect the library to the community outside of our physical locations. 

We wanted to literally take our services to the streets and to meet you where you are -- in the neighborhoods, at community events, in the parks, the coffee shops, the skate parks, concerts, farmer's markets and more.

We are super stoked to introduce what we came up with: DPL Connect -- a pedal-powered mobile library and wi-fi hotspot. 

DPL Connect will make its inaugural ride at its official launch on Wednesday, August 7 on 16th Street Mall. Our tricked-out trike will provide free wireless internet access and will be stocked with a rotating collection of books tailored to the bike's location (i.e. cookbooks and urban farming for farmer's markets, bike repair and Denver maps for bike trails, etc).
