We’ve been named Colorado Library of the Year for 2016 by the Colorado Association of Libraries (CAL)!
Factors in our selection were:
- Partnerships with the Boulder Farmers’ Market/Seeds Cafe; the Jaipur Literature Festival; the Small Business Development Center; Boulder Housing Partners; and others
- A more than doubling in program attendance in 2015 over 2014, including nearly 13,000 participants in brand-new STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math and Arts) activities
- The wildly successful BLDG 61 Makerspace, funded by the Boulder Library Foundation
- Increases in visits, new cardholders, e-book and overall circulation in 2015
Library and Arts Director David Farnan said, “It’s an honor to be recognized among so many good libraries in Colorado. We can say with confidence that the community is rediscovering its library.”
