What is StoryWalk®?
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.
StoryWalk® was conceived and developed by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT, with the support of its public library. There is now a StoryWalk® in all 50 states and in 14 countries across Europe and Asia.
StoryWalk® will open on Saturday, October 5. Please join us for a Grand Opening celebration at 9:30 am. There will be regreshements, giveaways and activities!
The Plainfield StoryWalk® is located adjacent to the playground in Settlers’ Park. Visit our Facebook page for all the latest StoryWalk® updates!
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.
