Street parking can be found at the intersection of Senate and Walnut Streets, but the easiest way to get to Storytime is via the Indianapolis Cultural Trail! You know you’re in the right place when you see the Orange Bridge (aka the Walnut St. Bridge).

Children’s author and Avon resident Shel Curry is bringing her summer storytelling series to downtown Indianapolis. Her book, “The Bedtime Story Race,” will be available in November 2021. A mother of four, Shel loves sharing stories with kids and this storytelling event is perfect for ages 2-8. Attendees will get an activity kit chock-full of surprises.

During the 45-minutes session, here’s what parents/caregivers can expect:

10:00 – 10:10 a.m. Check in

10:10 – 10:25 a.m. Meet and Greet with Author Shel Curry, who will read two stories

10:25 – 10:45 a.m. Kids receive their activity kits to enjoy


The storytelling area is located across from the Colts Canal Playspace playground, which kids will love after the event concludes. Located on the north end of the Downtown Canal off of West Walnut Street, the nearly 1-acre playground boasts a swirling roller-coaster-looking climbing tower, ladders galore, slides for kids big and little, swings, a spinner bowl, twister nets and stepping stones.



The deadline to RSVP is July 8, 2021. Walk-up registration will be available.

Bring the entire family to enjoy books and activities, while building literacy skills.


Cost: $8

(A note for parents/caregivers: Inside the secret reading bag will be a bookmark, crayons, coloring sheet, sight word sheet based on your child’s age, reward stickers and a special surprise)

Bring a picnic blanket or chair, as this event will take place outdoors in the grass. Pack snacks and make it an adventure!
