Dear [Council Member’s Name],
I am writing to encourage you to support the Denver Public Library in your work as a City Council member. The Denver Public Library (DPL) 27-branch system is historically the most-visited cultural attraction in Denver, with over 4 million in-person visits annually. That’s the equivalent of 52 home Broncos games!
DPL addresses the community’s most pressing needs through a wide variety of programs and services. It does the obvious things, like providing books, and the less obvious things, like providing Memory Cafes for older adults and their caregivers.
Here is why Denver Public Library is important to me.
[Advocates and Champions - Insert personal message of why the Denver Public Library is important to you.]
Thank you for your service on City Council. I believe the library is one of the most important organizations in the City. And once again, I encourage you to support the library. It is one of the best and most important things you can do for the good of Denver.
