COME ON A STORYWALK®—The Red Bud Public Library now has a StoryWalk® that families can enjoy at any time. Pictured at the final stop along the story’s path along the library is Assistant Librarian Jamie Joost.
For those looking for a fun socially distanced activity to do with children, how about a stop by the Red Bud Public Library?
While there is lots of fun to be had inside the library itself, they are now offering a fun new activity that can be enjoyed by all even when the library is closed – a StoryWalk®.
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 Ferguson.
Ferguson noted on the Kellogg-Hubbard Library’s website, “When I created the StoryWalk® Project in 2007, I knew I had a great idea; I just didn’t anticipate how well it would be received across the country and beyond. The idea was quite simple actually. Take the pages from a children’s picture book, attach each one to a stake and line them up along a path for folks to read and enjoy.”
She added that her goal was to create something that appealed to both parents and children, providing an activity for them to interact in together. She also wanted it to be free and accessible to all.
