The downtown library's new due date
A woman got off an RTD bus outside of the Denver Public Library main branch at about 9 this morning and asked library staff for some assistance.
But she wasn't trying to check out a book. No, the woman was in labor. In fact, she was so far along that the library staff members helped her give birth to a healthy girl, says library spokeswoman Celeste Jackson.
"It's the first time we've had a birth at the library," she explains, adding that it was nice to have a positive story to tell.
The next chapter? Jackson says the library is trying to find out the woman's -- and the baby's -- name, so they can send them library cards, and maybe some flowers.
