A Free Book for Every Four-Year-Old

Durango Public Library

Durango Public Library is promoting early literacy by providing a free picture book to every four-year-old in Durango, April 8 – April 22, while supplies last, as part of the statewide One Book Colorado program.    

Families of four-year-olds can stop by the Durango Public Library during regular library hours starting Monday, April 8 to pick up a copy of the book in either English or Spanish.  One Book Colorado books will also be available at Sunnyside and Fort Lewis Mesa Branch Libraries.  

This year’s One Book Colorado finalists are: Penguins Love Colors by Sarah Aspinall, Penguinaut! by Marcie Colleen, and Pig the Pug by Aaron Blabey. The winning book will be announced on April 8, the day the book giveaways begin throughout the state. 

One Book Colorado is a statewide initiative that aims to support family reading at home and instill a love of learning in Colorado children.
