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:

September - "Grow Strong! A book about healthy habits" by Cheri Meiners.  This month is sponsored by Growing Healthy Habits.


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, July 7th at 4 p.m. we will be using collaborative art: radiant layers.

Registration is required and begins on Monday, June 19th.  Register by clicking on the activity in our website calendar or by contacting the Children's Department at 330-683-1065.
