If in need of a book, I would stay away and use inter loan system that is available at your neighborhood library. Why this has been allowed to become a hangout for the tired,hungry,cold,hot and ill is beyond me.

I appreciated the architecture, but was a little disappointed on the inside. It reminded me of my high school library, just bigger.

This place is fantastic! I am in grad school and this is one of the places I frequent to get some classwork done.

Stunning architecturally, very spacious, and so many books (of course)! I hung out here and read before my Free Denver Walks started. They also have a little store with books for sale cheaply for those long plane rides.

Very well organized, excellent selection, friendly staff. The staff is very knowledgeable and will help any visitor to find what he/she desires to find. If the library does not have a book, they will gladly order it for you.
