Services at the Library

Bonfils Blood Drives @ Your Library

Douglas County Libraries has formed a “partnership for life” with Bonfils Blood Center and will be holding blood drives throughout the year. Bonfils needs 4,200 blood donations weekly to meet the needs of the community and to be prepared for unexpected events.

Blood Donation is one of the easiest ways to help your community, with each whole blood donation lasting less than an hour and having the potential to help several people.

Reservations are handled through Bonfils. Call 303-363-2300 to book your spot.

Go Green LogoRoof Sundolier at P.S. Miller LibraryDouglas County Libraries just got a little brighter, and a little greener! Through a donation from the Sunflower Corporation, they installed a Sundolier™ daylight system for no cost at the Philip S. Miller Library. Using solar power and a battery, the Sundolier™ will actually follow the sun, tracking its brightest angle, and disburse the natural light through the main room of the library. This should help reduce electric light and cooling demands, and related emissions.
