DENVER – There wasn't time to look up any books on obstetrics before a woman gave birth in the Denver Public Library on Tuesday.
Library spokeswoman Celeste Jackson said the woman walked into the library, said she had been riding a city bus and was in labor.
"She was pretty far along. She delivered right there," just inside the entrance, Jackson said.
Staffers and security guards helped until paramedics arrived and took the mother and baby to Denver Health Medical Center.
Jackson said staffers didn't yet know their names but they want to send flowers.
"It's never happened before," she said.
