  • I love the way you can walk over the Boulder Creek at this library. There is an awesome aquarium inside. It is set in a very calming place.  more »
  • The Boulder Public Library has very few books. If you want to go there to use a computer or the cafe, I guess it's okay. However, be mindful of the fact that it is a daytime hangout for transients. Al...  more »
  • So much more than just a library, this is a nice place to see some local art, have a coffee or snack. Good, peaceful work space, lovely grounds.  more »

  • Ever since the age of 5 I have been wild about libraries. The boulder public library has helped re-kindle this excitement. Over the past 3 years there have been many different things that have brought me to the library: viewing a silent film accompanied by live music, hunting down a new book, logging work hours on my computer, as well as hosting a lecture in one of their community rooms. I enjoy perusing the aisles of books and appreciate the email due date reminders as well as the email notifications letting me know that my long awaited book is in and ready for my pick up. Though I haven't ordered from the cafe I enjoy walking through and seeing people socializing and enjoying each other's company. The community board (just south of the cafe) has lots of great local info and I've been known to hang some event happenings there myself from time to time. Looking forward to returning soon to pick-up my next highly anticipated read.
  • Great library. Lots of resources. Great coffee shop inside
  • Such a great library. I grew up going to this library. The kids section has been improved majorly since then. The whole boulder library system is phenomenal!
  • I was really excited about the renovation of the children's section. But honestly once it was all done, I was highly disappointed. In a library I am looking for educational games, toys, and activities. Other libraries I've visited are filled with Lego Tables, train tables, puppet show sets, train sets, doll houses, puzzles, lincoln logs, and wall size chalk boards to draw on and even a kids "Market Place" filled with play food and registers for pretend play. one library I went to had a tree house for the kids to climb in and read in, then a slide to get down. It made the library a great place to hang out on a rainy day. This children's library is literally all books and 4 computers (no iPads with educational apps) with a few chairs shaped like alphabet letters and some baby toys.i n fact there's nothing for kids above the age of 2 or 3 to play with. I expected so much more in a newly renovated Library in Boulder. Also, it has a very limited selection of childrens movies and the homeless people outside are scary. I am a resident of Boulder, but now I always take my kids to the Longmont Library, which at least has a huge selection of legos for my 6 and 7 year old to play with.
