Denver Public Library

In 1889, the first public library in Denver was established, and the first Central Library, a Carnegie building, was funded in 1910. Burnham-Hoyt designed a new structure, which opened in 1956. When new space was necessary, the city’s voters approved the funding to expand the library by building a new addition, which was designed by Michael Graves. Enjoy the art around and in the library:
