Kid on pathA StoryWalk® encourages young readers and their families to take a walk outside and read a book at the same time! Each sign has pages of the story, with fun activities to make you think and move along with the story. Our StoryWalk® is normally installed at the Gladstone Nature Park, but has had to be removed again due to repeated vandalism. We hope to have it up again soon; please watch this space for updates! StoryWalk® is presented in partnership with the Friends of Gladstone Nature Park and the Gladstone Public Library Foundation.

The StoryWalk® project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, Vermont and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. StoryWalk® is a registered service mark owned by Ms. Ferguson. StoryWalks® have been installed in 50 states and 13 countries including Germany, Canada, England, Bermuda, Russia, Malaysia, Pakistan and South Korea.
