One Book Colorado gives free books to 4-year-olds
Posted on 10/13/2020
One Book ColoradoOne Book Colorado has one mission – to get a book in the hands of every 4-year-old in Colorado! Aurora Public Library is proud to join libraries across the state in reaching this goal this October.

Families and caregivers are invited to visit their local Aurora Public Library Tuesday, Oct. 13 to Sunday, Oct. 25 to pick up a free book for the 4-year-old in their life (kids who are, were or will be 4 in 2020).

This year’s title, “The Little Red Fort” by Brenda Maier, celebrates creativity, ingenuity and confidence as Ruby builds her own fort, with or without her brothers’ help. “The Little Red Fort” is a modern spin on the children’s classic “The Little Red Hen”. 

While supplies last, receive a fort building activity kit with your free copy of “The Little Red Fort” to draw a blueprint and build a fort, just like Ruby! Share a photo of your fort with APL on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter for a chance to be shared. 

Now in its ninth year, One Book Colorado was started in 2012 by Lt. Gov. Joe Garcia’s office and is made possible through public and private partners. The program stems from the idea that providing young children with access to books promotes early literacy and helps families serve as the first and most important teachers in their children’s lives. Since its founding, One Book Colorado and its public library partners, including Aurora Public Library, have given out approximately 75,000 books each year to children across Colorado.
