The Denver Public Library’s Plaza programming is specifically tailored to meet the needs of immigrant, refugee, and asylee populations. Plazas are a dedicated space for migrants from all over the world to connect with people, information, and resources, building Denver’s successful global community.

Plazas offer support for new immigrants including second-language conversation skills, citizenship, business networking, and more.

According to the Pew Research Center, Colorado is home to 1,071,000 Latinos, including immigrants and their descendants as well as Colorado natives, whose families were here before Colorado was part of the United States.

These rich and diverse communities represent over one-fifth of the Colorado population, but their stories and contributions are often absent from local and national histories. The Boulder County Latino History Project is a grass-roots initiative that has collected some 1,500 primary sources and made them freely available for study, including oral histories, films and videos, photographs, archives, public records, and news stories, documenting the lives of Latinos in this part of our state.
