StoryWalk® is a fun, educational activity that places the pages of a book along a popular walking route. StoryWalk® combines the joy of reading with all the benefits of being active outside. The pages of a children’s book are placed in holders along a path. As you walk the path you discover page after page, and pretty soon after a short stroll you have read a story.
The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Kellgo-Hubbard Library. StoryWalk® is a registered service mark owned by Ms. Ferguson.
There is now a StoryWalk® in all 50 states and in 14 countries across Europe and Asia.

Thanks to a generous donation from the Friends of the Plainfield Library and a partnership with the Village of Plainfield for making this project possible.
The Plainfield StoryWalk® has popped up at River View and Eagle Pointe Elementary Schools!
Head to River View at 2097 Bronk Road to read The Day the Crayons Quit. Then pop over to Eagle Pointe at 24562 Norwood Drive to read The Day the Crayons Came Home. Both books were written by Drew Daywalt and illustrated by Oliver Jeffers.
The books will be on display through the end of July … or until Mother Nature takes her toll on the signs.
Thank you to Plainfield Community Consolidated School District 202 for partnering with us on the Pop-Ups!
