Press Kit - Signature Programming
DCL celebrates writers and literature with signature events held four to six times each year at event venues around the county. These exceptional events put our patrons up close and personal with best-selling, nationally-known authors of fiction, nonfiction, cookbooks and kids’ books. Many events include refreshments, music and supplemental programs that make each an experience not to be missed.
Page to Stage
Page to Stage Productions brings free theater to elementary schools and libraries in Douglas County. Each production is based on literature and designed to promote arts-in-education efforts and literacy.
Douglas County History Research Center
The Douglas County History Research Center (DCHRC) collects and preserves the history of Douglas County, the High Plains, the Divide area of the Front Range and the State of Colorado in order to provide historical research resources to the public. We offer reference services, public programs and online resources for all ages.
Cuddle Up & Read
Through partnerships with area hospitals, Cuddle Up & Read provides new parents with a fun and meaningful introduction to the library and our early literacy services. The program includes small gifts for mom and baby, an invitation to get a baby library card, and a coupon for a free book. We also distribute a DCL growth chart, complete with reading suggestions and library service information, to parents through participating pediatricians’ offices across the county.
