Once home to Denver's first public library, this historic Carnegie Library was converted to municipal office space in the mid-20th century. The 2005 Civic Center Park Master Plan prioritizes the revitalization of this building as an active, public facility that is respectful of its heritage. This work would include the removal of non-historic finishes, rehabilitation of the building's interior, and exterior restoration. New uses - as identified in a series of 2010 community input sessions - are likely to include public restrooms, a restaurant or cafe, flexible space for cultural programming and events, and other amenities and opportunities to support Civic Center and its activation. In the short-term, the building's now-raw interior shell will be brought up to code in 2012.
