1995: New Central Library Opens

 

In 1995, Denver's new Central Library opened to national acclaim integrating the Library's existing 1955 Burnham Hoyt-designed north wing.  Designed by the world-renowned co-founder of  postmodern architecture Michael Graves, the new Central Library construction was funded by a 1990 voter-approved bond issue.  The largest library between Los Angeles and Chicago, over a million people visit the Central Library each year.  More information on the Central Library's architecture and public art is available here.
