To inspire families to get outdoors and explore local history, the Prince George Public Library and Central B.C. Railway and Forestry Museum have created a ‘ storytime walk.’

The walk is interactive and self-guided, and PGPL’s Amy Dhanjal says it also supports early children’s literacy development.

It also incorporates kid-friendly facts about the Museum’s exhibits along with an accompanying list of book recommendations.

“Storytime Walk at the Railway and Forestry Museum supports children’s early literacy development with songs, rhymes, and other place-based activities designed for kids from birth to 9 years,” said Dhanjal.

To participate, families must download the Geotourist app.

This activity is available any time the Museum is open and entry is free during the summer to families who show Museum staff the Geotourist app on their mobile device.
