The Storybook Walk provides a new outdoor adventure that champions family connection, early childhood development, and health and wellness. Stories are hand-picked by library staff with a child’s enjoyment in mind. Pages are posted at several stations along a trail, allowing families and friends to enjoy a story as they walk the path and take in the scenery.

New stories are featured frequently so that the fun continues year-round. Take a walk with us and read a new story each month at the locations listed below. This program is sponsored by the Library Foundation.
