Territorial Library ~ Colorado ~  1870

The valuable collection of books, public documents, and mineral specimens which constitute this library are kept in suitable rooms in Denver, in charge of the Territorial Librarian. The collection of works for this institution commenced early in the history of the Territory, and a librarian (W. S. Walker) was appointed in 1862. The duties of this librarian, and the management of the library, are defined in chapter fifty-two of the Revised Statutes; and a general supervision of the institution becomes a part of the duties of the Territorial Legislature.

Owing to the interest taken in this important public institution by the present efficient librarian, Geo. T. Clark, valuable additions have been made to the library since the date of this report.

The rooms are open to the public generally and volumes can be taken out, by complying with the prescribed rules.
