City of Stories: Summer at CPL

It's that time of year - Summer at CPL!

This year's theme, City of Stories, celebrates stories that explore people, community and culture and the common themes that connect us together. 

This summer, we encourage you to tell your stories and the stories of your communities! Through written and spoken word, art-making or digital media production, we can explore how stories connect us with others, build relationships and strengthen our community.

This is a call to neighborhoods around our city to investigate the stories we share and to amplify the power of their voices.

City of Stories runs from June 27–August 14. You can get started at any time:

Visit for events and reading recommendations for all ages (and more!) this summer. We'd love to see how you're celebrating City of Stories - tag #SummerAtCPL on social media to share your progress and adventures.
