Jeffco residents invited to create a lasting legacy at new Edgewater Library

Jefferson County Library Foundation (JCLF) and Jefferson County Public Library (JCPL) are offering naming rights in conjunction with the new Edgewater Library, planned for opening this fall.  Residents can support 21st-century library services, while ensuring that their generosity is recognized for years to come.

A range of naming oppor­tu­ni­ties are avail­able for indi­vid­u­als, families, orga­ni­za­tions, foundations and cor­po­ra­tions, enabling donors to pay trib­ute to their rela­tion­ship with the Library or to honor and rec­og­nize some­one spe­cial in their lives.

  • Naming opportunities range in value from $5,000 to $50,000 and give donors the opportunity to name major areas and service offerings in the library.
  • Name recognition opportunities range from $1,000 to $5,000 and give donors the opportunity to be recognized for providing access to updated technology and other library amenities.
  • Individual donations of $100 or more are welcome as well and will be recognized on a special donor wall inside the library.

“We can’t wait to open the new Edgewater Library,” said Donna Walker, executive director, JCPL. “Area residents have waited for this moment for years, and this gives them a chance to support the Library in a very visible way. We hope this program will support enhanced Library services and allow us add a few special features as we go forward.”

JCPL is partnering with the City of Edgewater to put a new 10,000-square-foot library in the city’s new civic center, planned for opening later this fall. Visitors to the Library can expect to find warm community spaces, more books and materials, enhanced technology and special features, including a quiet reading room with fireplace and a designated Family Place, offering special resources and services to children and families.

Moneys raised through the naming program will support enhancements to the building and its amenities. For more information on the naming program, contact Rebecca Winning at 303-275-2203 or, or visit
