About

Kirsten Cappy of Curious City

Curious City is a small company formed in 2003 to create discovery opportunities for children’s literature.

Curious City DPW (Department of Public Works) offers the resulting event kits, activity kits, curriculum, book trailers, book giveaways, and other tools that Curious City creates free for your use.

Each tool is designed to engage young readers in the written word through play, conversation, and social action.  Tools are located by subject and age group in the right column.

Curious City is run by Kirsten Cappy, a children’s book programmer /consultant and Mark Mattos, our creative operations manager.  Curious City is staffed, inspired, and advised by children’s book creators, educators, librarians, and other brilliant, creative folks.  Our deepest gratitude to our Board of Advisors (both past and present)!
