  • We grew up in Denver and lived there for 60 years. The building was remodeled on the outside but retained it's charm and history in the interior. It is on the periphery of City Park. I was so disappoi...  more »

  • I was amazed. A new resident to Colorado I was amazed at the size of this library. The space is wonderful. The employees are very friendly and welcoming. Do Not drive your vehicle because you most likely will not find a place to park just a note. I do not enjoy how the transients and/or homeless population seem to take advantage of all the designated areas to sit. They seem to bring large amounts of baggage, food, and disrespect for communal areas. As large as the computer area is it's always filled, so purchase a laptop! It's also very uncomfortable to have security assuming police duties while in the library. Overall I do like this location minus the few issues of no where to park, areas to sit are taken by local transients, and computers are always filled.
  • Wow, the biggest library I've ever stepped into! The library is so huge. There are so many floors here, they even have negative floors!!! Each floor is devoted to a certain subject. The library itself is beautiful inside and outside. Honestly, you can probably tour this place for about 30-1hr, its that big and its a library.
  • Fantastic resource when working on any kind of project for which Google just isn't cutting it. Upstairs you may find a vast collection of primary source records documenting the history of our lovely city and state. I find this to be immensely helpful when I'm at a dead end in my current line of research. The staff are very helpful and knowledgeable. They'll be certain to point you in the right direction.
  • Great experience at the library: all you need is mind clarity and ambition/passion and they have the resources for you to mold yourself into what you want to become! I myself do music and love to use their studios
  • This library is such a special place. I've been to libraries all over the country, and this easily is one of my favorites. There all sorts of quiet little nooks, yet the layout of the building is easy to navigate. There is a superb selection of music and movies. The staff has always been helpful and friendly. Also, check out the ideaLab! Its like a multimedia design and learning room where you can get help on projects. Honestly I could go on forever.

Where to stay in Denver

For a touch of class near all Denver's major attractions, book a room at one of the city's historical hotels, built during the late-19th century silver rush. Denver's oldest hotels feature opulent oak furnishings, silver chandeliers, and frescoed walls, as well as spacious rooms packed with high-tech gadgets. If you're planning your visit on a limited budget, consider the affordable hostels and bed and breakfasts located outside the central part of town. Alternatively, you can also stay at one of the mid-range hotels near the airport.
