JCPL: Jeffco's Secret Weapon


Most Jeffco residents appreciate the library's role in promoting literacy and learning, but few are aware of the library's impact on economic development. In fact, we're a valuable and often overlooked weapon in the economic development arsenal.

Jefferson County Public Library supports economic development by:

•    Supporting early literacy and education;
•    Contributing to a technologically literate workforce;
•    Providing critical resources for job seekers;
•    Supporting local businesses and startups;
•    Anchoring commercial developments and redevelopments; and
•    Contributing to a community’s quality of life.

We've just completed a white paper that documents our contributions. You can access it here.
