The Pikes Peak Library District's initiative aims to bring more families downtown while reading fun stories posted on shop windows to interest young readers. 

When strolling through downtown Colorado Springs, you may notice some book pages posted on windows along your route. The Pikes Peak Library District is working with various downtown businesses to encourage reading and physical activities in a new initiative called "Stroll-a-Story." 

The PPLD encourages kids and their families to get out for some fresh air and read what happens in their favorite books. The activity comes just in time for warmer weather. 

Stroll-a-Story currently has two main routes that end at the Penrose Library, where you can head inside and read more books. The north route takes you on a journey reading I Like Myself! by Karen Beaumont. You'll find pages of the book in the windows of the following businesses: 

The south route explores Cheer: A Book to Celebrate Community by Uncle Ian Aurora and takes you to the following places: 

If you read a Stroll-a-Story, the PPLD encourages you to post a photo on Facebook and tag Pikes Peak Library District - Kids. Learn more about the initiative here

If you finish both routes, the PPLD encourages you to go on a Silly Stroll at a library near you. Window posters and lawn signs encourage kids and their families to participate in silly activities to enjoy time outside together.
