This summer enjoy reading and the outdoors! Follow along with the Stratford Library as we visit 5 outdoor locations around Stratford and enjoy a StoryWalk® and a program at each one.
WHAT IS A STORYWALK?®
StoryWalk® is an innovative and delightful way for people to enjoy reading and the outdoors at the same time. Pages from books are laminated and attached to wooden stakes, which are installed along an outdoor path. The fun doesn’t end there either, there will be prizes and one live main event at each location.
“The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. Storywalk® is a registered service mark owned by Ms. Ferguson.”
