Celebrate! Birthday Parties at Douglas County Libraries

September 19, 2022

Fall is a busy season for parents. With back-to-school, extracurricular activities, and holiday planning, who has time to plan and throw a birthday party? 

Douglas County Libraries does, and we’d love to host your child’s birthday celebration at one of our library locations!

Birthday parties at DCL are fun, customized, and convenient, and they’re especially easy on parents. Let our professional event coordinators manage all the details for you!

The epic adventures, roaring good times, and magical stories experienced every day at DCL Storytimes and through our extensive collection of kids’ books and DVDs can be a memorable part of your child’s birthday, too. And dress-up is encouraged!

Birthday parties at DCL are ideal for kids ages 2-7 and are available in three fun themes: Once Upon a Time, Folklore and Fantasy, and Things That Roar. Delightful stories, crafts, and activities are built into every party!

Simply choose your theme and library location — Castle Pines, Castle Rock, Highlands Ranch, Lone Tree, Parker, or Roxborough — and our event coordinators will take it from there.



All themed birthday party packages include:

  • Stress-free planning, on-site coordination, and party management
  • An invitation that you may email to guests and thank-you notes for use after the party
  • Party décor
  • Party setup and cleanup
  • Age-appropriate activities
  • Goody bags for guests, including age-appropriate toys and snacks
  • Birthday lollipop bouquet
  • Gift book for the birthday girl or boy

Give yourself a break. Take the stress and work out of planning your child’s birthday party and enjoy the day instead when you celebrate at Douglas County Libraries!
