We got to visit the Denver Public Library to research events that happened during the past, in Colorado. We took an elevator up the building to go meet James K. Jeffrey, who worked at the library as a Collection Specialist; he taught us many new things that we could share at home. He told us that the library held one million cards that held 6 and a half million of information.

 

You could learn about how in the olden days, small news paper companies would steal pictures from houses and later put the pictures in their daily news paper. He also said that if you were in the paper, it would either be a good thing or a bad thing. Some people would even beg to get off of the paper because they knew that they were going to be made fun of by other people because of something they did.

 

They owned a massive collection of news paper articles, which James K. Jeffrey taught us about. We even got to witness some of the old news papers that were digitally transferred into the computers. Overall, the trip was very amusing and you could learn a lot of facts if you visited the Denver Public Library.
