Expanded hours give West Denver community additional access
The Denver Public Library today announced the Rodolfo “Corky” Gonzales Branch Library at 1498 N. Irving Street have added Sunday operating hours. The additional day means the branch will be open seven days a week to better serve West Denver residents.
“The increase in hours at the Rodolfo “Corky” Gonzales Branch Library gives customers more access to our services by being open seven days a week,” said City Librarian Michelle Jeske. “The additional service hours benefit not only the West Denver community but the City of Denver as well.”
The branch, the newest in the Denver Public Library system, opened its doors in February 2015 and quickly gained popularity with West Denver residents who lacked a nearby library. With more than 3,600 visitors per week, the branch has been so successful in its first year that the Denver City Council approved a budget request to increase weekly hours from 48 to 52 to accommodate the growing demand.
The Rodolfo “Corky” Gonzales Branch Library’s regular hours starting Jan. 24 are: Monday, 12–8 p.m.; Tuesday, 12–8 p.m.; Wednesday, 10 a.m.–6 p.m..; Thursday, 10 a.m.–6 p.m.; Friday, 10 a.m.–6 p.m.; Saturday, 9 a.m.–5 p.m. and Sunday, 1–5 p.m.
Customers can also access many library services such as the library’s catalog, e-books, audio e-books, music and movies at denverlibrary.org.
