Broomfield Spellbinders is a program of the Broomfield Council on the Arts & Humanities (BCAH). It is part of a Statewide network of similar organizations dedicated to sharing and preserving the ancient art of oral storytelling. For more information about Spellbinders, please visit https://Spellbinders.org.


For more than 10 years, our Spellbinders® Storytelling Volunteers have shared stories with school children and seniors in adult care facilities. While Broomfield itself does not have a local school system, we share stories in schools and other venues in the City of Broomfield and many neighboring communities-Erie, Lafayette, Northglenn, Thornton, and Westminster. Our library in the Brunner Farmhouse contains a wealth of storytelling materials and is available to our storytellers to add to their "repertoire." To "meet" some of our storytellers and hear a sampling of stories, please visit these YouTube channels: “Spellbinders-Broomfield” and “Wynn Montgomery” (Pop Tales).​ The "Compendium of Favorite Stories" provides descriptions and sources of our tellers' typical tales.
