Summer of Adventure

The Denver Public Library's Summer of Adventure program encourages youth from birth to 12th grade to READ, MAKE, and EXPLORE both independently and inside the library. We provide opportunities for informal learning and activities to create academic and social emotional growth throughout the summer months. 

We can't wait to see you this Summer!

We have NEW prizes, events, and ways to participate. The Denver Public Library is ready to help you meet experts, learn new skills, and find amazing new ways to read.

ideaLABs are makerspaces: free community spaces to make things. Do you need to produce videos, create games, make music, or learn about electronics?  We aim to provide the tools and resources you need to make your projects happen. The tools available varies from lab to lab - please check the equipment and software lists to find the space that has what you need. The lab is free to anyone – no library card necessary!
