And photographers, bring your cameras at sunrise or sunset for some almost guaranteed awesome shots! #CapitolHill #Uptown

thumbnail for The Central LibraryDenver Public Library, Central Branch, 5th floor, western geneology...by far my favorite area in the library (and it is HUGE!) The 5th floor is quiet, there are windows everywhere (and the view is pretty cool, especially at night,) there are tables if you need to sprawl out and study, and there are comfy chairs if you just want to relax and read. If you are interested in the history of the west, they have some awesome artifacts and displays on this floor that are always changing. #LocalBooks
