because it's the library Boulder deserves.

Boulder Public Library is wildly popular - in 2018 BPL welcomed over 1 million visits - yet wildly underfunded - in 2018 BPL operated on 2002 funding levels, with 16% less staff than 16 years ago. The Boulder Library Champions are campaigning for secure long-term funding to give Boulder the library it deserves.

Our library needs your help. Join your neighbors in supporting sustainable funding for our Boulder Public Library by attending the Boulder City Council meeting on Tuesday, May 7. Tell council: WE WANT TO VOTE on library funding this fall!

  • You are invited to sign up to speak when our library is scheduled for discussion (around 8:30 PM) or during open comment at 6 PM. Tell Council about what our library means to you and that it is time to fully fund our library.
  • You can also just attend to show your support for our library. Print out a Boulder Library Champions sign and bring it with you so council can see our strong community!
  • If you can’t attend, emailing council is also a great way to get involved! Or consider submitting a letter to the editor with the letter template and submission instructions you can find here. We also have a list of talking points you can use.

You can support this initiative by donating, volunteering, or subscribing for updates. You can also sign our petition or endorse our efforts.
