The Louisville Public Library may not be the largest library in Boulder, but it is one of the nicest. The building even won a national architecture award in 2007. Conveniently located in downtown Louisville, the library is separated into clear sections for meetings, events, adults, young adults and children. The young adult room has a reputation as the best place for study groups and as a free hang out. The children's library rivals the Boulder Public Library in terms of variety and selection. The Louisville library also features an inter-library loan system. Patrons can find almost any book no mater where it is located within Colorado. -Sabrina Zirakzadeh
John Breaux was a local unemployed man, beloved by his community. He rode his bike everywhere, cleaned up the roads when he could, and was friendly to everyone he met, but for years he was a staple of Boulder County and his death had a major impact on the community. Shortly after he died, Louisville residents raised the money and got permission to erect a small memorial for John Breaux in downtown Louisville, next to the public library in the old town where everyone can see it easily. A memorial to a man who loved Boulder and its residents, the statue is a touching testament to the impact one person can have on many others. -Sabrina Zirakzadeh
