One Book 4 Colorado – Inspiring a Love for Reading

One Book 4 Colorado is a statewide campaign to promote early literacy by providing free new books to every four-year-old in the state. Something as simple as putting a book in the hand of a young child can inspire a love of reading and help that child develop into a life-long learner.

Colorado’s economic health and vitality depend on making sure every child receives a world class education. And a child must first learn how to read, before he or she can read to learn. Through a broad coalition of stakeholders – including early childhood advocates, educators, business and community leaders -the state is spearheading Colorado Reads: The Early Literacy Initiative, an effort to help ensure all Colorado children are reading at grade level by the third grade. One Book 4 Colorado is just one of the many community-based partnerships inspired by this movement to help ensure every child is school-ready on the first day of kindergarten.

In Grand County, books will be distributed to all preschoolers. Presentations of the books will be made at pre-school story times in the following Grand County library branches:
