What is One Book One Broomfield?

  • One Book One Broomfield is a citywide reading and discussion program that encourages residents to read the same book at the same time, and create a shared sense of community through literature.

What does being on the One Book Committee look like?

  • Committee members meet around once a month from August - May. The meetings typically take place on Wednesday afternoons from 4-5 p.m. at the library.
  • Applicants must be 18 years or older to apply.
  • Committee members are expected to:
    • Suggest potential One Book titles
    • Read all books off the One Book book list (this could mean reading around 15-20 books within a couple of months)
    • Contribute to thoughtful discussions about potential titles
    • Attend the monthly meetings
    • Attend and help publicize the One Book author talk and any supporting programs 

How long do I get to serve on the One Book Committee? 

  • One Book Committee members serve a 4 year term on the committee. 

When will I find out whether my application was accepted?

  • The One Book recruitment team will review applications in June and invite select applicants to move forward to the interview process, which will take place in late June or early July. 
  • If your application is not accepted, you will be notified by email in July.

I already applied to be on the committee before. Can I apply again?

Yes! With so many applicants and so few spaces, we would love to hear from you again!
