Your DCL library card gives you access to all kinds of things beyond just books! Here are some great items to explore.
Take an Adventure Through a State Park
Explore our state parks with a free state parks pass through Check Out Colorado! Check out a backpack with a free pass at any of our locations. They are part of our Lucky Day program for new and popular materials, so they’re available first-come, first-served.
Reserve a pass to a local cultural institution through our Adventure Pass program. Book tickets to the Butterfly Pavilion; Clyfford Still Museum; Denver Firefighters Museum; Denver Museum of Miniatures, Dolls and Toys; Dinosaur Ridge; or History Colorado.
Try Your Hand at the Loom
