image There is not much parking and it's a smaller library but there is computers, a printer, friendly staff, and books. Like many libraries, it's fairly quiet which I liked because I could focus on what I was doing. Some libraries you hear people whispering but not here. The only thing I didn't like was the one computer was slow then completely restarted after but I think it was messed up. They had a highlighter and pen that I borrowed. The staff also said bye and to have a good rest of my day when I was leaving.

image This is one of the smallest Denver Library branches, but the building is a gem with gorgeous architectural details inside and out. It is a Carnegie library, constructed in 1918 by father and son architects, Varian & Varian. The style is Spanish eclectic with brick, stone, and painted concrete. The exterior window details and main entrance with highly-decorated arches and columns plus the gabled, tile roof provide a very impressive facade. The interior is a single room with vaulted ceilings, a fireplace, and a mural by Carlota Espinoza (Pasado, Presente, Futuro). The building was restored in 2020-2021 and is in fine condition.
This was originally the Byers branch. William N. Byers was the owner/editor of Denver's first newspaper and a vigorous Denver booster. He pushed for a post office in Denver and was the first Denver postmaster. He was a founder of the Denver Tramway Company and constantly promoted infrastructure improvements. He became less active and moved south of town after his mistress tried to shoot him while he and his wife were taking a stroll.
Mr. Byers' reputation has fallen out of fashion in recent years due to his promotion and perpetuation of a completely phoney "Indian War." Byers used his newspaper to gin up hysterical rhetoric which led directly to the infamous Sand Creek Massacre in 1864. Byers continued to promote the vicious murder of over 200 peaceful, elderly men, women, and children as a great victory, despite all evidence to the contrary.
The branch was renamed for John "Thunderbird Man" Emhoolah, Jr. on October 21, 2021 after considerable community discussion. Mr. Emhoolah was a Kiowa activist also with Arapaho roots and a descendent of survivors of the Sand Creek Massacre. He served in the Korean War and as an engineer at Boeing, but is noted for a 50-year career in Native American studies and education, in Seattle and Denver. He was also a tribal administrator and a prominent community leader, in Denver and nationally.

image I love going to the library for many reasons including expanding my horizons by looking at books that are not filtered by my input into "the algorithm" and having a place to study/research devoid of distractions. This location is very small but has everything you could need including computers (limited) and printing. I do like it here over larger places because it does tend to be quite a bit quieter than larger locations.
