StoryWalk Steamboat Women United

25 Sept. – 10am

Yampa River Core Trail

StoryWalk Grand Opening

Bud Werner Memorial Library, Women United and the City of Steamboat Springs will unveil the Steamboat StoryWalk. Located along a side path off the Yampa River Core Trail near the Stockbridge Transit Center, Steamboat StoryWalk is an innovative way for families to enjoy stories together in the outdoors as you meander between parts of a deconstructed story that is placed at intervals along a walking trail. The first StoryWalk is “The Best Place in the World” by Petr Horáček.

PLUS, we have an upcoming volunteer opportunity with Women United every Monday beginning August 16! Please join us in weekly walk-throughs of StoryWalk to check for cleanliness and vandalism. Maintenance walk-throughs happen every Monday at the StoryWalk, located on the Core Trail just north of the Stockbridge Transit Center. Volunteer with Women United by signing up for your Monday maintenance walk-through below.

Thrive Together – Women’s Leadership Summit

Thrive Together is a collaboration that promotes, motivates, and empowers women in all phases of life through personal and professional development. Presented by the Steamboat Springs Chamber and Alpine Bank.

The climb to the top can be a hard road for anyone. Women, in particular, face a myriad of challenges that can make the journey upward toward a position of power especially challenging. We bring you Thrive Together, a summit for women, by women, because we believe that talented, fierce, and disruptive women are good for business!

This combined in-person and virtual event will feature a variety of learning formats, including breakout sessions, workshops, general session keynotes, and an exhibitor area featuring event sponsors and local companies. Coffee and lunch are included for the in person event.

Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library

The Imagination Library is an early literacy program introduced to Routt County by Routt County United Way’s leadership giving affinity group, Women United. The program is available to all Routt County children who are currently between the ages of birth to five. Each child will receive an age-appropriate book every month until their fifth birthday. The books are hand-selected by a panel of early literacy professionals as a program of the Dollywood Foundation and includes two bilingual titles per year.

The Imagination Library provides every Routt County child necessary literacy skills for success. Research shows 66% – 75% of families read more to their children after receiving the Imagination Library books. Most importantly, children develop a lifelong love of learning and reading. The Imagination Library is available to children outside of Routt County through the Book Gift Program.
