Arapahoe Libraries is part of the statewide mission to promote early reading by providing a free new book to families with young children as part of One Book Colorado. One Book Colorado, opens a new window is a statewide initiative aiming to support family reading at home and instill a love of learning in Colorado youngsters.

Reading together every day helps get kids ready to learn to read in kindergarten, and getting free books into homes makes that easier. To ensure school readiness, it is critical that young children have frequent and routine access to books and that they be read to consistently.
