Michael King, shareholder at Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck, was recently elected president of the Denver Public Library Commission (“Commission”). Appointed to the Commission by Mayor Michael B. Hancock in 2013, King previously served as president of the Denver Public Library Foundation and completed a six-year term on that board. He is committed to keeping a strong library system and feels it's strategically imperative for any great city's economic and community development, and will lead the Commission through a pivotal time for the Denver Public Library as it seeks financial support in Denver’s GO Bond process for much-needed deferred maintenance and modernization.
The Denver Public Library Commission formulates strategies and sets policies for the Denver Public Library system, with responsibility for all budgeting and management of the system. The Denver Public Library changes lives: creating jobs through small business development, bridging "the Digital Divide" by empowering our workforce for the rigorous demands of today's knowledge-based economy, enabling patrons to harness sophisticated technologies and building communities across the city – all while investing in our future through child and adult literacy programs.
