Denver Central Library to partially reopen to the public  in new temporary space

The Denver Central Library will reopen to the public in a new temporary space on Tuesday, Feb. 14. The same, limited public services previously offered will be available in the space located in the northern portion of the first floor, including borrower services, holds pick up, materials retrieval, the Children’s Library, access to Western History & Genealogy and Reference services (archives and research), and Community Resources. 

The new, temporary, public entrance to the building will be located on the west side of the building, between 13th Avenue and 14th Avenue on Acoma Plaza, across from the Denver Art Museum. The building’s hours of operation will be Monday to Thursday 1 p.m. - 6 p.m., and Sundays 12 p.m. - 5 p.m.

The building was closed for three weeks as public services were relocated from the south side of the first floor to the north side of the first floor. The renovated space, called The Park View, will eventually become the library’s event space when construction is completed and the library reopens fully. The renovation is part of the Elevate Denver Bond which was passed by Denver voters in 2017.

Holds remain available for pick up at the Hold Pick Up Window and Curbside Service point on 13th Avenue on Sundays from 12 p.m. - 5 p.m., and Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. -
6 p.m.

Floors two through seven will remain closed to the public. Due to space constraints in the new public areas, there will be limited space available for browsing and limited seating.
