Make Something This March

Get out those knitting needles, button up that paint smock, strap on the old tool belt and “Get Your Craft On!”  Every month our Denver Public Library branches offer dozens of fun, easy and creative craft programs for all ages.  If you’re a seasoned crafter or a novice wanting to find your craft calling, you will find a wonderful variety of activities to choose from at your local libraries.

Winter of Reading is here!

Have you ever come to the library in the summer and thought to yourself..."I wish I could do Summer of Reading!" Well, your wish is our command.

Winter of Reading is here! Winter of reading is an adult reading program like the Summer of Reading, except it’s for adults. You read and complete library-related activities, check them off in your brochure, and then claim your prizes. Simple yet sweet.

Holiday Cheer!

​This time of year we all spend a lot of time buzzing around - shopping, going to holiday parties and attending holiday events. Sometimes this constant non-stop list of activities make it very hard to actually enjoy the season. If you are having a hard time getting into the spirit, join us this Saturday, December 13th for some fun holiday programming!
