Baby born at Denver Public Library truly is Unique

Jonathan Shikes' January 27 blog "The Downtown Library's New Due Date" was the first to tell the story of a woman giving birth at Denver Public Library's main branch, at 10 W. 14th Avenue Parkway. Yesterday, Channel 4 correspondent Raj Chohan filled in the details via interviews with proud mom Dominique Trevino, helpful bus passenger Vittoria Whittsett and attentive security guard Zac Laugheed. Of course, the station also offered a closer look at the baby herself, whose lovely first name, Sariah, is paired with the middle name Unique, which she certainly is. After all, no one's ever been born at this particular library before -- although once word gets out about the friendly service, women in labor may start stopping by in droves.
