Come take a StoryWalk® at your library. A StoryWalk® is a fun, educational activity that places the pages of a book along an outside walking route.

Visit the library to enjoy the book Thank You, Earth by April Pulley Sayre.

The walk starts near the library's front doors.

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.
