Stimulated by the cultural revival of downtown Parker, this new library branch serves as a beacon for further civil enhancement. The Parker Library now serves the community in a modern and innovative way. As the largest of the Douglas County branches, it successfully harmonizes its size with the nooks and crannies necessary for a library patron. Parker Library provides ample space inside for contemplation and collaboration, and shares space outside with the Parker Plaza for excitement and fun. This branch is capable of serving community members’ differing needs, while providing a place for inspiration and discovery.
