Downtown Denver is expected to see a significant number of vehicle and pedestrian traffic this evening due to multiple events happening at the same time. Avoid the area if possible and plan ahead for significant delays.
“We’re around history all the time, and now we’re living it,” says Brian Trembath, Special Collections Librarian in the Western History/Genealogy department at the Denver Public Library. In the quiet that is now the Central Branch, I Am Denver tours the collection as Trembath discusses efforts to diversify 20th Century holdings and collect history as it’s unfolding — from gathering Black Lives Matter protest signs to archiving photos of COVID-19 closures. Watch the video below for more. As of September 2020, the Denver Public Library branches remain closed due to COVID-19. Librarians and archivists are still available for research.
