Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Hey kids! It's Convertible Barbie and her friend, also named Barbie! They're on a road trip! To a summer reading adventure! At the Denver Public Library! It's all part of the summer reading program at DPL that attracted 31,218 young readers last year!

Check out Passenger Barbie! She's hot! Check out her choice of reading material! It's hot, hot, hot!

Check out Convertible Barbie! She's hot! No hands on the wheel! Good thing this is just a display at the library! Don't try this at home!

Have a great summer, kids! And read, read, read!

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
