StoryWalks® are a self-directed enjoyable way for children and adults to enjoy reading and the outdoors at the same time. To create our StoryWalks® we use pages from a children’s book, laminated and attached to stakes along a path or trail. 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. This summer we are featuring three books in 9 locations across the County of Middlesex. each location will host a book for a total of four weeks. Please practice physical distancing while enjoying the StoryWalks®.
