Blair-Caldwell African American Research Library

Denver Public Library's Blair-Caldwell African American Research Library, the only library of its kind between Detroit and Oakland, serves as an educational and cultural resource for the people of Denver, Colorado, and the world, focusing on the history, literature, art, music, religion, and politics of African Americans in Colorado and throughout the Rocky Mountain West.

Exhibits highlight areas such as the historic Five Points neighborhood, African Americans in early Denver (including the city's earliest arrivals), the Black West, African American leadership (the Mayor's Office and other distinguished mayors of Denver) and a gallery of temporary exhibits.

The Blair-Caldwell Branch also offers full, traditional library services and is housed in a three-story, wheelchair-accessible, 40,000 square foot building.

For more information, please visit the Blair-Caldwell African American Research Library web site.
