The Denver Public Library (DPL) has won many awards over the years and continues to be recognized for its leadership in the library sciences field.  It is innovative, resourceful, compassionate, and driven to serve the community’s needs and address the community’s challenges. For evidence of this, look no further than the recent announcement of Library Journal’s 2021 Movers and Shakers Awards.

In this new content series, the Friends Foundation aims to capture how public libraries have influenced some of our city's most inspiring leaders. In each edition, you will get a sense of the leader's affinity for reading, the role they see libraries playing in our communities and of course, a few book recommendations.

Charitable giving in 2021 pays off! A couple of key provisions in the CARES act have been extended into 2021. Support DPL and maximize your tax savings.

Book donations make an impact at Denver Public Library. When you free up shelf space by donating books to the library, the action sets a process in motion that helps our community while offering new life for your used books. Last year, approximately 393,000 books were donated to the library!
