One Book Colorado PR and Programming Toolkit

After careful consideration of the COVID-19 situation, One Book Colorado has made the difficult decision to postpone the announcement and distribution of the 2020 book. The safety and health of our state’s four-year-olds, their families and everyone else involved in One Book Colorado is our top priority, and the best way to serve our communities is by postponing the book distribution and events.

We will announce new distribution and activity dates as soon as we are able. Check back here for updates.

One Book Colorado, A Book for Every Four Year Old, will be back for its 9th year!

This page is intended to provide information and resources to public library staff participating in the One Book Colorado program. The public can find more information on the One Book Colorado official website.
