How does a public library celebrate its anniversary?
With a book, of course!
The Denver Public Library (DPL) commemorates its 2014 quasquicentennial (that's 125 years, folks) with Indelible: Denver's Lasting Impressions of the Library, a compilation of special memories, observations, photos, drawings, and poems from customers, staff, and supporters.
The book features vignettes that range from the humorous (Tara Bardeen's memories of dialing up the computer catalog CARL in 1989); to the inspiring (David Bondarchuck's story of utilizing DPL cookbooks as a homeless teen and going on to own Scratch Catering Services); to the downright amazing (Zac Laugheed's tale of delivering a baby at the Central Library while on duty as a security guard).
Indelible reveals how DPL has connected people with information, ideas, and experiences over its 125 years—and in the process, has changed lives!
Indelible: Denver's Lasting Impressions of the Library is available for purchase for $10.00 in the photo sales area of the Western History/Genealogy department (Level 5, Central Library).
