Monkton library to host StoryWalk this Saturday

MONKTON — Russell Library will host a StoryWalk Saturday, Oct. 7, from 9 a.m.-noon, at the Monkton Community Center building site adjacent to the Monkton Friends Church on Monkton Ridge. Enjoy the picture book “How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World”, enjoy a crunchy, fresh apple and walk this beautiful site on the ridge.
StoryWalk is an innovative and delightful way for children — and adults — to enjoy reading and the outdoors at the same time. Laminated pages from a children’s book are attached to wooden stakes, which are installed along an outdoor path. As readers stroll down the trail, they are directed to the next page in the story.
StoryWalks have been installed in 50 states and 12 countries, including Germany, Canada, England, Bermuda, Russia, Malaysia, Pakistan and South Korea. They are always received with appreciation.
StoryWalk was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, Vt., and has developed with the help of Rachel Senechal, Kellogg-Hubbard Library.
In addition to the walk, participants may sign up for a library card right there at the new building site. A special pop-up apple craft project will be available at the Russell Library just down the street. Families may walk on Saturday from 9 a.m.-noon, but the craft project will be available to anyone on the three days that the library is open during regular hours — on Thursday, Oct. 5, from 3-7 p.m., and Friday, Oct. 6, and Saturday Oct. 7, from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. All are welcome to join the fun. Please call with questions 802-453-4471 or visit our website.
