We recently launched an online bookshop - Red Chair Bookshop online! The online bookshop offers great deals on used books in all genres, including Colorado and western history, and cooking and literature. You can also purchase your favorite new titles.

DPL and DPLFF have come together to partner more closely and more intentionally this past year, and we plan to continue to do so. For library customers, this means you’ll see our branding side-by-side on different events throughout the year.

2020 is almost over. Has a year-end ever been more desired? I’ve found it easy to think about all the bad, but can’t forget all the good. All the good healthcare workers. All the good essential workers. All who took steps to manage the pandemic. All the technology that has brought vaccines to us. All the voters who participated in the 2020 general election. All those who are taking steps to address social and racial justice. And all the good the library is doing.
