The Central Library, Western History Art Gallery - Level 5
Roger Whitacre worked as a commercial photographer in Denver for 35 years, between 1970 and 2005. His specialties included architectural, commercial and editorial photography, much of it focused on Denver’s architecture, including many of its historic landmarks and neighborhoods.
If you use the public PCs in the Library, you have probably noticed that there is no Word Processing program on those computers. If you want to be able to print and edit the documents you carry around with you on your flashdrive, this is a simple tutorial on how to access them.
Once someone has created a Google account (Gmail, Google Docs, Google calendar, any of it will be the same username), they have access to the Google Docs application. From the home screen, there is a side bar of options, above which there are two buttons: Create New and Upload. Click on Upload.
You will be taken to a screen where you can select files to upload into your Google Docs folder. Click on the “Select files to upload” link in the center of the page.

There will be art exhibits, entertainment and forums focusing on the Americas with visitors from many—maybe from all—of the countries of the Western Hemisphere in attendance.
