The library is spacious and welcoming, and features comfortable reading areas, free Wi-Fi and guest Internet stations, and dedicated spaces for kids and teens.

The library also boasts the largest and most numerous public meeting spaces in the district, accommodating up to 130 people.

In addition to the friendly and professional staff common to all Douglas County Libraries, Philip S. Miller houses the staff and archives of the Douglas County History Research Center, offering guests specialized help with historical, archival and genealogical projects. A satellite location of the Arapahoe/Douglas Works! is also housed in the library, providing a variety of no-cost employment services.
