Work Description: 
This perspective drawing shows how the architect, George W. Roe of Pueblo, saw the complete library when east and west wings were added. The center portion was built about as he pictures it here and was opened in 1904. His wings were never built. His sign over the door says "A.D. Library Building 1902" and as built it only says "A.D. LIBRARY 1902". Imagine the problem of book control in a library where we see four entrances and there may have been others. On January 22-24, 1902, the Regents awarded a prize of $150. to George Roe for his design - in a design competition and chose him to be the architect. Acting President Ramaley presided at the bid opening August 25, 1902. There were six bids but there was discussion of details and at a special meeting August 27, 1902 at the Albany Hotel in Denver, T. H. Bruning of Boulder got the contract for $56,700 plus $75.00 if LUXFER prism glass is used In the roof.
