StoryWalk® is a fun, educational activity that places a children's storybook along a walking trail within the community. This project was created to help build children's interest in reading while encouraging healthy outdoor activity for all. Stories along the Storybook Trail will change monthly April-November with a break during winter months.

The 2023 StoryWalk® will feature:

April - "Chicka Chicka Boom Boom" by Bill Martin Jr.

May - "Mother Goose Rhymes Las Rimas de Mama Oca"

June - "Bug Hunt" by Editors of Storey Publishing


Kids in grades 3-6 will enjoy using a variety of creative techniques and media as part of our monthly first-Friday Crafternoon series.  On Friday, June at 4 p.m. we will be making a roll-up card for dad.

Registration is required and begins on Monday, May 15.  Register below or by contacting the Children's Department at 330-683-1065.
