Book Drops & Donations
All DCL book drops are open and accepting returns of checked-out items.
Book donations are important to us. Due to current restrictions and fewer volunteers to process donations, we've implemented some temporary changes. Book donations are accepted on a limited basis at our Castle Pines, Castle Rock, Highlands Ranch, Lone Tree, and Parker locations during the times listed below. We are currently accepting donations of only two 18”x14”x12” boxes or less per household.
- Castle Pines: Wednesdays, 10AM-2PM
- Castle Rock: Wednesdays, 3-7PM
- Highlands Ranch: Saturdays, 10AM-2PM
- Lone Tree: Mondays, 10AM-2PM
- Parker: Thursdays, 10AM-2PM
Storytime, Events & Playscapes
In-library Storytimes and most other library events remain unavailable.
fun and activities happen each weekday at 10:30AM. Library staff lead songs, rhymes, reading and fingerplays to keep nurturing those all-important emerging reading skills. Virtual Storytime also is available through Storyblocks
, a project of Colorado Libraries for Early Literacy (CLEL).
for kids ages 0-5 is available each weekday through July 30. Times and locations vary, and registration is required as space is limited. You may register online or with library staff. Thank you for keeping Storytime allergen-free.
Playscapes and other interactive features are now open, including Little Letters Post Office at Castle Pines, The Market at Highlands Ranch, Playful Pets at Lone Tree, and Mission Control at Roxborough. The Parker Playscape is currently under renovation; the brand-new Playscape will open in June.
