Take a Hike: Books, Maps and Websites for Picking the Perfect Trail

Trails Illustrated Map of Rocky Mountain National Park

If you're into hiking, it's hard to beat living in Denver. Some of the best trails in the nation are within an hour's drive of the city. Whether you like casual strolls or scaling fourteeners, Denver Public Library can connect you with great resources to help you find the perfect trail.


TuneGlue Finds New Music For You

If you are looking to widen your musical horizons based on musical groups or artists that you already enjoy, I recommend using the online tool TuneGlue. Next time you are browsing the library's music collection you will be supplied with new artists to discover and treasure!

When you first pull up the website, you might be underwhelmed at the sheer sparseness of it. Start by searching for a musical artist or group that you like. After searching, a little record icon pops up. Click on the icon and then on "Expand" - you will be given a handful of different artists or groups that you may also enjoy. Click on any of the bands or musical artists to generate even more leads. Sometimes, the connections overlap and create a web of suggestions.

Reading Wish Lists

Don't let the hold on holds get you down! In addition to keeping track of items you would like to put on hold later on paper, there are lots of other great ways to keep track of books you have read and would like to read online! How do you keep track of what you want to read?

These sites are free, easy to use and provide unique ways of keeping track of what you have read and would like to read.
