Books in the Park returns to Pueblo for summertime reading opportunities for children

PUEBLO, Colo. (KRDO) -- Beginning Monday, young Pueblo readers can enjoy free books in the park for the summer.

According to the Pueblo City-County Library District, the program has been running since 2004 when the late city Councilman Ray Aguilera suggested bringing library services to children who might not otherwise have the opportunity to visit a library.

Books in the Park uses withdrawn and donated books allowing any child to complete the Summer Reading Club gameboards even if they don't have a library card.

In addition to an opportunity to access books, children will be able to participate in crats, enjoy free lunches, and at the chance to pick out three free books to keep.

Books in the Park happens at two locations:

  • Ray Aguilera Park
    • Monday through Wednesday between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.
    • Family Storytime is at 11 a.m.
  • Fairmount Park
    • Thursday and Friday between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.
    • On Thursday the Family Storytime is at 11 a.m.
    • On Friday, there is a Family Performer at 11 a.m.
