Books in the Park


Books in the Park is a summertime favorite. The program traditionally includes books, art,crafts, snacks and a weekly story time presented by community volunteers. Free lunches for children ages 18 and under are provided by Pueblo City Schools.

Pueblo Parks and Recreation is proud to partner up with the Pueblo City-County Library, YMCA of Pueblo and other community partners for this great program.

Due to COVID-19 Books in the Park will look different this year:

The traditional “Books in the Park” program will not be offered. The Pueblo City-County Library District is offering a drive thru only. The vehicles receive their book(s), an activity kit, and a sack lunch.
