The Magic of Stories Is on Display at Douglas County Libraries

For immediate release: December 21, 2022

Families looking for kid-friendly entertainment during winter break can find it at Douglas County Libraries’ Forest of Stories. The interactive exhibit at all DCL locations includes a twinkling display of trees decked in beloved children’s tales, classic literature, comedy, crime thrillers, mysteries, classic rock, manga, and more, plus life-sized trimmings. The exhibit is free and open during library operating hours through January 7, 2023; no ticket or registration required.

Each library features whimsical trees of all sizes trimmed in themed decor and memorabilia, plus specially coded ornaments that are part of an immersive districtwide scavenger hunt. Customers are invited to visit every DCL location, find the coded ornaments among the trees, and enter those codes online for a chance to win prizes. The more libraries visited and codes entered, the more chances to win.

Forest of Stories offers something for everyone to enjoy over winter break, from tree peeping to playing for prizes. Learn more at
