During February, families can enjoy a free, interactive story stroll experience in downtown Fort Collins. Enjoy reading while spending time outdoors and exploring your community!
Poudre River Public Library District has partnered with the Downtown Development Authority and Downtown Business Association to present a family-friendly activity that showcases children’s stories in new and unexpected ways.
Since we aren’t able to offer in-library programs and storytimes quite yet, our Children’s Librarians have found another fun way to bring stories to life.
What is Story Stroll?
Story Stroll is a self-guided tour that families can enjoy at their leisure. Simply follow the path on the map in order and see the story unfold in front of you in the storefront windows of 15 downtown businesses. Each stop on the path features another portion of the story.
Please make sure you wear a face covering and observe physical distancing while enjoying the story stroll.
February’s featured book is a beautifully illustrated, bilingual story by Angela Dominguez titled Maria Had a Little Llama / María tenía una llamita. This English-Spanish retelling of the classic nursery rhyme combines Peruvian-inspired illustrations with English and Spanish adaptations that offer a fresh twist on the story of a loyal little girl and her mischievous pet llama.
Step away from the screens and social media and enjoy a stroll throughout downtown Fort Collins. More information about the Story Stroll, including a copy of the map, can be found online.
