On April 18, Commissioner Kraft-Tharp attended the ribbon cutting event for the first self-service, stand-alone library in the United States. The library is located at 14455 W 64th Avenue in Arvada. 

Jefferson County Public Library meets people where they are - - the Bookmobile, the on-line library are just two examples. Given their mission and forward thinking, it was only fitting they would be a trailblazer in adopting new library technology. With access to computers, wi-fi, printing and copying, the new Express Library will provide equitable access to the technology Jefferson County constituents need to thrive today.
