The Denver Public Library reopened additional branch libraries to the public this week. The Central Library remains closed to the public for planned renovations.

All branch libraries with the exception of Byers Branch Library, Decker Branch Library and Smiley Branch Library reopened on April 13. Nine branches reopened to the public on March 9.

Branches will be open to the public five days a week, Tuesday through Saturday, for varying hours with the exception of the Westwood Branch Library which will be open to the public four days a week, Tuesday through Friday.

Several of the nine branches that reopened to the public on March 9 will expand hours from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. to full days 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. Open to the public hours can be found at denverlibrary.org/locations. The library hopes to expand open to the public hours at locations over time.

Curbside pick-up service will continue at all locations during curbside pick up hours which can be found at denverlibrary.org/curbside-holds.

“Our customers were really excited to return to our locations when we reopened in early March,” said Michelle Jeske, city librarian. “We’re pleased to open the remainder of our branch libraries to the public to provide library access across the city.”

Customers visiting these branches will be able to access the library’s collections, check out materials, use computers and more. Meeting rooms, study rooms, and ideaLABs remain closed and in-person programming and events are suspended.

The Denver Public Library closed all locations to the public on March 16, 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Curbside pick-up will continue at Decker Branch Library and Smiley Branch Library. The library continues to offer services and programming by phone at 720-865-1111 or online by visiting denverlibrary.org

The library asks that customers refrain from visiting if they are not feeling well. Customers are also asked to practice physical distancing by remaining six feet apart from others at all times and customers over the age of three should wear a face covering during their visits.
