Derby Resource Center to provide space for temporary library

COMMERCE CITY – The Derby Resource Center will provide space to temporarily house the city’s public library, Anythink Commerce City, while library renovations take place through the fall.

Anythink closed in January for renovations and is tentatively scheduled to reopen in the fall of 2010. Commerce City and library staff recognized the need to continue library services for Commerce City residents during renovations, and worked with the Derby Resource Center to develop a temporary solution favorable to city residents.

“The opportunity to maintain library services during renovations is wonderful,” said Charlene Meeker, the City of Commerce City’s Derby Redevelopment Coordinator. “The city is fortunate to have such a great place like the Derby Resource Center to offer its residents as a short-term library and community gathering place.”

Located at 7270 Monaco St., the Derby Resource Center will provide services that include a book pickup, fully equipped computer lab with wireless internet and a comfortable reading environment for patrons.

When the interim library opens in mid-March, residents will be able to place books on hold at www.anythinklibraries.org and pick up their items from the Derby Resource Center. Two Anythink employees will manage the temporary library space.
