NEW NORTH BOULDER LIBRARY CAPITAL CAMPAIGN

NEW NORTH BOULDER LIBRARY CAPITAL CAMPAIGN

Meet the new North Boulder Library.

We’re a community of Library lovers, and families in North Boulder have been patiently anticipating the groundbreaking of their very own branch. That day has finally arrived!

Set to be located at the east side of Broadway at Rosewood, stretching between Broadway and 14th Street, the new North Boulder Library offers a secluded, protected location with expansive views. 

With groundbreaking just around the corner, the Boulder Library Foundation is leading the charge to close a $1.5 million funding gap. You can help! Without additional support, the final project will likely not include defining features such as:

      • a new makerspace….maker kitchen
      • access to new and expanded BoulderReads! spaces
      • a community greenhouse
      • and much more!

Help us build beyond books by supporting the new North Boulder Library today!

Sustainable Design for a Healthy Boulder

Having a new library branch will both enrich our community and care for our environment. Designed by WORKac, the North Boulder Library promises to serve as a model for net zero and green architecture around the world. In short, environmental sustainability and an emphasis on community-friendly space are at the center of the project.

  • Natural beauty. The design for the North Boulder Library takes advantage of views from the site south toward the mountains with large public spaces, while creating a sloped, landscaped garden to the north.
  • Sustainable infrastructure. From solar panels for green energy to vertical chimneys for passive cooling, care for our environment is integrated into the architecture itself.
  • Seamless, inside-out design. Imagine community rooms accessible after hours by walking on the building’s green roof. Picture an extensive makerspace spilling outside to a playground that’s incorporated into the building’s façade.
