Thanks for posting this

Thanks for posting this history of computers in Colorado's libraries! It has been, and will be, a long road to continue to meet the access needs of our patrons. The Community Technology Center at Denver Public Library's Central location began as a word processing center -- complete with typewriters! Then it evolved into a docent-run computer lab, which had limited hours of operation and 18 computers. Now we're providing internet access via 74 public computers, with 20 more to come. Much of the CTC's current expansion relies on funding from the BTOP (Broadband Technology Opportunity Program). For more information, explore the Colorado State Library's "Bridging Colorado's Digital Divide" webpage! http://www.cde.state.co.us/cdelib/BTOP/
