Welcome, Board of Trustees!
Seven all-volunteer members meet weekly to guide the Boulder Library District formation

"Longitude: The True Story of A Lone Genius Who Solved the Greatest Scientific Problem of His Time" by Dava Sobel
"This book celebrates John Harrison's world-changing invention of maritime navigation by chronometer. Lacking the ability to measure their longitude, sailors throughout the great ages of exploration up until the 18th century had been literally lost at sea as soon as they lost sight of land. Sobel discusses the technical processes involved in Harrison's mechanical solution, the competing method (navigation by the stars), and the personalities of the two methods' proponents."
