Story Walk Ribbon Cutting

Story Trail Ribbon Cutting

Tuesday, June 13th, 4:30pm at Josephine Crossing

Billings Public Library, thanks to the generosity of the Billings Public Library Foundation and McCall Homes, has successfully implemented Montana's first "Story Trail" around the outdoor amphitheater at Josephine Crossings (Lone Pine Drive, Billings). 

The Story Trail is a wonderful way for adults and their young children or grandchildren to combine literacy skills and healthy exercise as they walk to each of the 20 reading stations while enjoying beautiful scenery year-round. Laminated pages from storybooks are attached to metal posts, which are installed around the park path. As visitors stroll the path, they are directed to the next page of the story. Some posts will include activities to engage participants with their natural surroundings.

To celebrate the grand opening of the Story Trail, the library will host a ribbon cutting on Tuesday June 13th at 4:30pm. The celebration will include treats and special craft based on the story featured on the trail.   Bring your walking shoes, your reading glasses, and enjoy a story!

Check out the Library's YouTube Channel - helpful and interesting videos of all sorts.

See many other programs and activities on our web pages, at Events for Adults, or things for children to do on our Children's page, or just keep an eye on our events calendar. The library's web pages hold a wealth of information and activities for all ages.

Many resources are available online with your library card. Explore our digital magazines: learn a foreign language with Mango Languages or a new skill with Universal Class, and have fun with our other databases and downloads.
