One Book One Boulder launches
The Boulder Public Library and CU are again partnering on the One Book One Boulder project, and this year we've joined forces with all the county libraries as well. This year's book is Homer H. Hickam's American best-selling memoir, "Rocket Boys." Local libraries are quickly becoming unable to fulfill the many requests they are getting for the book, so be sure to check out a copy soon. A limited number of books are also available through the Office of Community Relations. Watch the website for updates on local OBOB events as they are announced.
