Welcome Message

The Auraria Library is located in downtown Denver, and serves the students, faculty, and staff of three leading urban institutions: University of Colorado Denver; Metropolitan State University of Denver; and Community College of Denver.

We strive to create a welcoming environment that fosters equity, diversity, and inclusion and nurtures creativity and learning. We are deeply committed to ensuring equitable access to knowledge and information from diverse perspectives for everyone as we build a shared vision that challenges existing notions of the library and sparks discovery and curiosity about the world around us.

To that end, we are developing our strategic directions that will assist us in articulating how we support our users and define the impact the library has on our community, both in and out of the classroom. You can learn more about our strategic planning process!


We invite you to see what's possible at the Auraria Library!
