Library Champions 2020 Kick-Off Celebration

Join Aaron Brockett | Michael Carcaise | Michael Caplan | Marsha Caplan | Juana Gomez | Dick Shahan| Andy Sayler  | Joni Teter | Deborah Fowler and celebrate with the Boulder Library Champions as we kick off 2020!

Why are we celebrating? Because City Council agreed to begin discussing the formation of a library district in March of 2020. At our celebration, we will be discussing our plans to secure sustainable funding for our library (BPL) at the ballot box in November 2020!

Where: Buena Vista Community Center, 1775 Yaupon Ave, Boulder , CO 80304.

When: January 24, 6pm-7:30pm, Refreshments will be served

The suggested contribution levels are as follows:

+ Library Champion - $250
+ Library Supporter Gold - $100
+ Library Supporter Silver - $50
+ Library Supporter Bronze - $25

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.

If you can't make it to the kickoff, please consider a donation to our campaign or sign up to volunteer in support of our efforts.

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.
