Modernizing the Denver Central Library and 10 other library branches to better connect people with information, ideas, and educational experiences.
Denver’s libraries see more than 1.2 million visitors each year. By investing in new technology, redesigning spaces, and improving accessibility, Elevate Denver will amplify the library system’s community impact.
Through the program, the Denver Central Library will see significant safety and security upgrades as well as an expanded and relocated children’s learning area and event space for improved accessibility. Elevate Denver will make additional improvements at neighborhood branches, including:
- Athmar Park Library
- Blair-Caldwell African American Research Library
- Byers Library
- Eugene Field Library
- Pauline Robinson Library
- Ross-Barnum Library
- Ross-Broadway Library
- Ross-University Hills Library
- Schlessman Family Library
- Smiley Branch Library
