Check Out Our New Children’s Library!

A treasured family fixture in downtown Denver, the Children's Library closed for two years due to COVID-19 and then for ongoing renovation. We recently reopened to the public and if you ask us, it was worth the wait.

Have a look at some of the updates below, and we hope to see you in person soon!

The renovated Children's Library includes lots of opportunities for play and interaction. Tunnels and windows built into the shelving invite kids to explore.

Our new storytime area is a hemisphere with comfy seating and lots of natural light.

We secretly want this glam bathroom at home.

Two all-gender restrooms each have an outer sink and a large private stall. The stall has small and large potties, a changing table, and safety seat for little ones.

Plus, both restrooms have a free dispenser for menstrual hygiene products.

Our new Project Room has plenty of space to get messy AND wash up. Adjustable height tables accommodate small and large humans and there's room all around to showcase your finished projects.

Wondering about those lines on the floor? They're a Denver street map!

We can't forget our young customers who come to the Children's Library for technology! PC computers with cushy seats will greet young gamers and researchers alike. Plus, free printing is available nearby.

What does it take to move a library? A lot of hands and a hearty sense of humor! A moving company used these giant carts to move our entire 50,000 item collection from the basement back up to the first floor. Our team has been hard at work fine-tuning everything!

We hope you'll join us for our Grand Opening celebration on Dia del Niño on April 24th. We will have performances, special treats and family friendly activities throughout the afternoon.

Can't wait to see you soon around our Denver Children's Library!
