Located on South Wilcox Street in downtown Castle Rock, the furthest south of the seven Douglas County Libraries locations is named for Philip S. Miller, a major benefactor of many town amenities. The library is spacious and welcoming, and features comfortable reading areas, free Wi-Fi and customer 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 patrons 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.

EVENTS at Philip S. Miller - Castle Rock:

Programming at Philip S. Miller goes beyond more than a dozen weekly Storytimes, from regular youth science, LEGO and writing programs to periodic special literature-inspired events. Adults and teens can get in on the action, too, whether they enjoy book clubs (many genres to choose from), author visits, volunteer opportunities or current events.


"Art is for Everyone" - Tadashi Hayakawa, Artist

Tadashi Hayakawa

Tadashi Hayakawa is a lifetime student of art. He is forever experimenting, developing and creating his visions with the spirits of the East and the techniques of the West. “As I approach the twilight of my life, I dream a lot about the life in the heavens,” says Tadashi. Many of his recent paintings reflect those dreams.

Tadashi Hayakawa was born in Tokyo, Japan and came to the U.S. to study art at age 19. He first studied at Los Angeles City College and went on to earn his M.F.A. at the Otis Art Institute. Included in his long list of solo and group exhibitions are the Modern Art Gallery and Don O’Melveny Gallery in L.A., the Peace Exhibition at the Nagasaki Museum in Japan and the International Art Festival at the Museum of Art in Korea.

Tadashi now resides in Parker, CO.

Please join us at a Meet the Artist Reception on Sunday, September 20, from 1 PM to 4 PM in the Castle Rock Bank Room East.

Hayakawa has reduced prices to make his art available to all. He will donate 40 percent of the proceeds to the Douglas County Libraries Foundation, Castle Rock Artists Guild, and Deep Space Art Gallery in Parker.

Tadashi Hayakawa's paintings are on display through October 12.
