Dickinson Branch Library

The Dickinson Branch Library, at 1545 Hooker St. in the West Colfax neighborhood of Denver, Colorado, is a Carnegie library which was built in 1914. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2002.

It was designed by architect Maurice Biscoe in Italian Renaissance Revival style. Above a raised concrete basement, it is built of brick covered by white concrete stucco. It was originally light ivory in color with a sage green base. It has a hipped roof of red Spanish tile with broad overhanging eaves supported by wooden brackets, and a broad cornice "ornamented with ceramic tiles of heraldic designs, originally in brilliant colors. The tiles, now painted over, were blue-green squares attached to circular tiles set into the stucco finish. The tiles are of an alternating square and diamond pattern."
