A New Story Every Visit

Stroll through a StoryWalk®

If the warmer weather has got you craving some quality time outside with your family, try stopping by a Delaware County District Library StoryWalk®. A StoryWalk is a disassembled children’s book featured on different panels around a path or trail. These paths are currently in the outside common spaces surrounding all four of our current locations: Delaware, Orange, Ostrander and Powell.

Children’s librarians at DCDL have created these trails to promote reading and physical activity together in one interactive, family-friendly activity. Every month or so, a new picture book will be displayed along the trail with fun literacy tips and activities for families to enjoy.

Visit our StoryWalk website to learn more about each book, including how you can check it out to read your own copy at home, as well as bonus activities to accompany some of the stories. Check out the booklist on the DCDL StoryWalk website to see what titles will be coming in the future and their planned locations.

Curious about the titles you could be exploring this spring and summer? Visit the StoryWalk page for more.

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.

The Delaware County District Library serves as the public information provider for our community, using traditional and innovative technology to encourage curiosity, free inquiry, and lifelong learning in a friendly environment.
