Speedway Tales


Speedway is a rich and diverse town that is full of stories. With our Summer Reading Program theme being "Tails & Tales" this year, we would like to reach out into the community and find out what tales our amazing residents and patrons have to offer. While we do own multiple copies of the "Story of Speedway" book, we are currently interested in compiling stories of the people in Speedway. In exchange, we plan to send all of the stories we receive off to a printer to get them bound into a paperback book.

Anyone who contributes a story to the book will receive their own copy of the book for free!

Some story ideas could be the following:

  • What is your favorite memory of Speedway?
  • What was it like growing up in Speedway?
  • What is your favorite thing about living in Speedway?
  • Your own idea

To submit your story, please click the link below, or you may bring in a typed or written copy to the library.
