Library Events

Been through some tough times? We've got something for that!

Life can be hard sometimes! Poverty, addiction, homelessness...these can weigh a person down, and make it hard to function, let alone rise up. The thing about hardship is that it can feel less hard if you do something about it, whether that's finding some inner peace, being creative or sharing your story. We've put together two programs to help you lighten your load.

Benefit From a Book Club

Your Denver Public libraries offer numerous and varied opportunities to read and discuss books with your fellow bibliophiles.  From science fiction and fantasy to mysteries, contemporary fiction and postmodern literature you can find a book discussion group to stimulate your interest.

The Irony is Present at DAMs Untitled

The folks who work in libraries didn't invent irony....but we've perfected it. We're bringing our driest humor to our next offering at the Denver Art Museum's Untitled. Come by and join us for one of the cheapest, most entertaining evenings on the Denver calendar!

Here are some programs coming up for the rest of this month:
