Do you want to try some new music and not spend ANY money? I'm talking free, folks! Your tax dollars at work.
Yes, the Library has many CDs (22,085 titles today, to be exact) but that's not what I'm talking about right now. Bet you didn't know we had streaming music that you can listen to day or night and never leave your home. All you need is a Denver Public Library card, an Internet connection, and Adobe Flash Player 9 or higher (free).
At its regularly scheduled meeting, Thursday, June 17, the Library Commission voted on the Colfax and Irving (Avondale) site as the preferred site for the new Westside Library. It will become the selected site upon final negotiation of sales terms and approval of a purchase contract by the City and the property owner.
The Commission arrived at this decision after an extensive review process, including discussions with the community, and considering -- among other issues -- accessibility to the most number of Denver residents, with a focus on children. Additional criteria included parking, land price, bus access, light rail access, total population within one mile and site size.
The Denver Public Library will be launching a mobile website in the coming months. Your feedback is very important to us, so please take a moment to let us know what kind of Library content you would like to access on your mobile device. Please Note: we currently do not have versions of our new website or catalog optimized for the mobile environment, but most mobile users will have the best experience with the light version of the new catalog.
In addition to powerful technology under the hood, the website features innovative ways to interact with Library experts, search or browse for books, movies and music and give you the information that you’re looking for…FAST.
Based on customer feedback and usage statistics, the most used resources are now the easiest to locate.
Books, Movies and Music now included in main navigation at the top of each page
The most helpful tools are found in the right column on every page
If you find an article in a library database that doesn't have full-text, here's what you can do:
First, click the "Check for full-text" link to find out whether any of our other library databases has the full text. The library subscribes to databases from different sources and each source has a different set of journals and magazines they offer in full-text. The check for full-text button will open the "Denver Public Library Citation Linker," which will determine whether the journal is available in any of our other databases. If no other sources are found, you can request the article through Interlibrary Loan. Use the link on the Citation Linker page to log into our RequestIt! service.
