Help seed the clouds for an incredible art installation at the new Green Valley Branch Library.
The Denver Public Library is asking for your help in creating an interactive, dynamic artwork that will display your search terms on an array of large LCD screens in the new Green Valley Ranch Branch Library, and call up associative media clips culled from the Library's collection of books, DVDs, music, digital images and text archives.
New apps launched today - December 7, 2010. With the new free OverDrive Media Console app you can download both EPUB eBooks and MP3 audio eBooks directly to your iPhone or Android phone.
Update: if you've downloaded the previous version of Overdrive's app, and are having problems with the e-books appearing after you download them, you may need to delete the app and download it fresh. See commenter Mark's thread below.
The exhibit will open on Saturday, December 11 at 10 a.m., with an opening reception until 12 noon. A wall will be dedicated to the children and families who participated in the free art programs at the Byers Branch throughout the year, and left their work at the library to be put on display.
The art will be on display for the public throughout December.
This event is free and all are welcome.

Deciding to donate landscaping to beautify the Ross-Cherry Creek Branch was about as easy as walking by the building.
We walk in the neighborhood on a regular basis and noticed that not much had been done as far as landscaping. When the branch was under renovations recently, we started talking about how wonderful it would be if the outside of the branch could look as beautiful as the inside.
As the owners of G.E. Enterprises, Inc., a landscape company, we knew we had the expertise to really make a difference in the “curb appeal” of the branch. We contacted the library, got the wheels turning, and completed the project soon after the branch reopened earlier this summer.
