Raise a reader with One Book Colorado.

We're teaming up with One Book Colorado (formerly, One Book 4 Colorado) to put a free book in the hands of every four-year-old in Colorado. Each April, we celebrate young readers by giving away more than 5,000 copies of a great book (in English or Spanish)! 

Until then, cast your vote for the 2019 give-away! Check out these exciting options in our collection or even watch videos of each book being read aloud. Then, vote for your favorite Dec. 1 - 31! The winner will be announced in spring 2019.

Book pick up is April 8 - 22, 2019 at all Jefferson County Library locations

Help Jeffco kids build their home library by casting your vote! Early access to great titles like these helps ensure these little ones will be more ready to read as they start kindergarten. Raise a reader and foster a love of libraries when you check out all of our resources for Kids and Families at the Library or online. 

One Book Colorado gives away over 75,000 copies of the same book to each 4-year-old in the state in English and Spanish through public libraries and Denver Preschool Program classrooms. The privately-funded program began in 2012 as a collaboration between Lt. Governor’s office, Colorado Office of Early Literacy, Colorado State Library, the Denver Preschool Program, public and military libraries statewide, the private sector, and the nonprofit and foundation communities.
