About Us

2015 Reading Progress Celebration

BoulderReads has been the Community Literacy and Learning program of the Boulder Public Library since 1986. We provide programs and resources that foster literacy and lifelong learning for all ages.

BoulderReads programs support the development of basic literacy and life skills in our community, including:

  • Effectively using language to read, write, listen, and speak
  • Utilizing technology to reach his or her full potential as a parent, employee, and community member

Since 1986, BoulderReads volunteers have provided over 305,000 hours of literacy tutoring to adults and children in our community. Their volunteer time is valued at over six million dollars.
