Find a Book Colorado

Librarians Page

"Find a Book, Colorado" is a fun and easy tool that allows parents to select books based on a Lexile measure and interests. This free search tool builds custom book lists for readers at all ability levels, and then allows readers to locate selections at their local public library.

Children and parents may come to your library to ask for help with the Find a Book, Colorado site, using a Lexile range.. A Lexile measure indicates the reading level of an individual; it also specifies the complexity of a book. Readers can even search for books in Spanish.

You can also encourage children, parents and educators to pledge to read over the summer on the Find a Book, Colorado site.
