Denver Public Library Group Visits & Tours

A trip to the library can be as simple as hanging out and browsing the stacks, or as structured as a tour followed by a specialized workshop on research skills and resources.

DevCamp 2015

This summer, 62 teens from across Denver took a dive into web development with the help of local developers and the library at a DevCamp. What they made was pretty amazing.

Relax, Knitters: Fridays in the Fresh City Lounge

Take a long lunch. We say it's okay. 

The Denver Public Library is hosting knitters (and crocheters) in our Fresh City Lounge. We'll have an excellent teacher there to help you if you need or teach you a beautiful and simple baby blanket pattern. But you can also bring your own project (any portable handwork is great) and your lunch and just relax in the lounge to help bring your work week to a satisfying finish! 

Teachers: Request Research Pathfinders for Your Students

Teachers, did you know that librarians can put together sets of books for you to use in your classroom? Tell us about your topic, and we’ll compile a set of up to 30 books based on the grade and reading level of your students.

Sci-fi and Fantasy book club for adults at the Central Library starts on Tuesday, 6 Oct from 6:45-8 PM

This is Middle Earth from space. Of course.

Lovers of Science Fiction and Fantasy rejoice! By popular demand (well, polite request, really), the Central Library is starting a sci-fi and fantasy book club for adults.


We're going to meet on either a Monday or Tuesday evening from 6:30 or 7 to 8. Please leave a comment saying what would be the best day and time for you. I'm thinking the first Monday or Tuesday because that's pretty easy to remember.
