To honor the memory of Juanita Gray, a former Denver Public Library staff member and dedicated community advocate, the Library presents an annual award to an outstanding individual in our community. This event has become the kick-off celebration of African-American Awareness Month at the Denver Public Library.
We encourage you to nominate someone you believe deserves this award. We are equally interested in youth, ages 14-18, who are setting an example for all in our community.
Storyblocks is a project of Colorado Libraries for Early Literacy, working in partnership with Rocky Mountain PBS. It is a collection of 30-60 second videos designed to teach songs, rhymes, and fingerplays appropriate for early childhood. Each video clip includes helpful early literacy tips to increase caregivers’ understanding of child development and pre-literacy needs.
