Literacy and Recreation Program now available to Delaware County Residents
Delaware County residents can now take part in StoryWalk at Rose Tree Park! Located in the upper field behind the amphitheater stage, StoryWalk is a children's story book that is spread out page by page across 18 reading stations along an approximately .25 mile trail that promotes health and literacy in children. StoryWalk is generally geared for children between the ages of 1-7. You can find a map of StoryWalk's location and reading station trail by clicking this link. Find the StoryWalk welcome sign, as seen above, to begin your journey!
Read the StoryWalk Opening Ceremony Press Release here. The StoryWalk project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Vermont Bicycle & Pedestrian Coalition (VBPC) and the Kellogg Hubbard Library. Delaware County Libraries is proud to be the first library system in the region that offers all of its patrons the StoryWalk project.
The StoryWalk book will be changed throughout the year, so check our website and social media accounts as we'll be announcing new StoryWalk books. Currently in StoryWalk is This is How I Grow By Dia L. Michels and illustrated by Wesley Davies. This book is displayed as part of this year's Wildlife Education Grant from The Community's Foundation.
