Nevada Story Stroll


In 2023, the Nevada Public Library received a $6,000 grant from the Story County Community Foundation to erect a "Story Stroll" around the City's trail loop west of the fairgrounds. The Library and Nevada's Parks and Recreation Department worked together to make this happen.

The Story Stroll starts and ends near the soccer fields on the trail, where 22 story posts have been put up for a half-mile walk as you go from post to post to read the pages. Nevada's Story Stroll promotes reading and exercise for everyone. The library hopes to change out stories every four to six weeks during warmer months of the year.
