The Library-District Issue: Library districts are now the most common form of governance and funding for Colorado libraries. Our Boulder Public Library is beloved for its excellent service, innovative programs and available materials, and commitment to the Boulder community. With over one MILLION visitors during 2018, our BPL's popularity continues to grow by leaps and bounds.
Unfortunately, over the years funding and staff have NOT grown with the demand for existing and new library services.
By creating a library district, our Boulder Public Library would be funded through a dedicated property tax rather than by unreliable City of Boulder sales-tax revenue. This would provide reliable, sustainable funding and the ability to plan confidently to create the library our community needs.
BECAUSE IT'S THE LIBRARY BOULDER DESERVES!
About the Boulder Library Champions: We are a group of citizens who believe that the formation of a library district is the best way to solve the BPL funding problem. We are dedicated to securing sustainable funding for the Boulder Public Library.
