This library always seems to have the books I'm looking for. The only downfall is that it's frequented by homeless people so you'll certainly see that if you visit. The library is on the same block as the art museum.

Extensive collections, helpful and knowledgeable staff, computers available for checking email, doing resource, or ordering books from additional libraries. Cheerfully appointed, a joy to sit and read. Great periodicals

The grounds of the library are wonderfully situated as are the amenities of the building itself. I have been utilizing the Denver Public Library for over 20 years now and don't plan to stop.

When the line for the art museum is too long, the display you want to see is sold out, or just like western art and relief maps, this place is open, out of the elements and fascinating.

A modern public library. Can have a lot of homeless hanging around. Interesting architecture. There is a nice book store just inside with a very good selection to choose from including best sellers and local history books. Helpful staff.

If one is looking to go to a library in Denver, this is the place. Located at 13th and Broadway , it is very near downtown. Often I have seen small art exhibits and other interesting instalations. It is worth a visit.
