Storybook Walk

Read these beloved fables in downtown Grants Pass and Cave Junction business windows through the end of November.

A Storybook Walk is an outdoor reading and walking experience of a children’s book with the pages of the book placed in different areas along a walking path.

Families are invited to stroll through downtown on their own time and at their own pace to read the featured story. Each “chapter” directs participants to the next location.

"I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly" in Grants Pass

The library has partnered with downtown Grants Pass businesses to launch a Storybook Walk through the end of November featuring a fun version of “I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly.”

The pages are displayed in the windows of local businesses on both sides of the road on 6th Street, between G Street and I Street. The first “chapter” is located at Wild Rogue Emporium at 202 SW 6th Street. A printable version of the map is available.
