One Book 4 Colorado


Congratulations to all One Book 4 Colorado partners! The project won the 2013 Colorado Association of Libraries' Community Partnership award!

One Book 4 Colorado will occur again from April 13-27, 2015! Through this project, we will strive to give away copies of the same book to every 4 year old in Colorado through public libraries, Out and Read Colorado clinics, and Denver preschools.

This page is intended to provide information and resources to public library and health clinic staff participating in the One Book 4 Colorado project. The general public can find more information on the One Book 4 Colorado official site.
