Storywalks® Coming to Trails Near You

Trails Regional Library is excited to announce a new outdoor activity for patrons to engage with reading! We are placing StoryWalks® in communities throughout Johnson and Lafayette counties. StoryWalk® is a fun, educational activity that paces a children’s storybook along a popular walking route in the community. StoryWalk® was created as a way for people of all ages to combine physical activity with books and to help build children’s interest in reading while encouraging healthy activity for all! 

Each Storywalk features about 30 pages from a popular children’s book, spaced out along a walking path or trail. Patrons are encouraged to take lots of pictures at the Storywalk and share to our Facebook page (@TrailsRegional), Instagram (#TrailsRegionalLibrary) or send to us at marketing@trailslibrary.org. Then, complete our short survey about your experience here.

The StoryWalk® concept was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and was developed with the help of Rachel Senechal, Kellogg-Hubbard Library. This project is supported by the Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act as administered by the Missouri State Library, a division of the Office of the Secretary of State.
