What is a StoryWalk®?

A StoryWalk® is a disassembled children’s book featured on different panels around a path or trail. The Delaware County District Library StoryWalk® trails promote reading and physical activity together in one interactive, family-friendly activity.

Where can I find a StoryWalk®?

You can find a StoryWalk® year-round at all of our Delaware County District Library locations, including Delaware, Orange Township, Ostrander and Powell. Each month a new picture book will be displayed along the trail with fun literacy tips and activities for families to enjoy.

Are there additional things to do?
