Everyone is invited to the StoryWalk® Ribbon Cutting on Wednesday, June 5 at 11:00 a.m. at McClure Branch in Columbia Park. Sponsored by Peoria Public Library and Peoria Park District and paid for by our generous donors, Storywalk® lets families read an entire picture book as they stroll through the park. Pages are mounted on posts in weatherproof stands and will be changed periodically.
After the ribbon cutting, stay and enjoy the first of a summer of Strolling Storytime and Picnic programs from 11:30 to 12:30. The library staff will take you through the Storywalk® and provide drinks for you to enjoy with your lunch. Strolling Storytimes will be held on the first and third Wednesdays in June and July. All ages are welcome.
StoryWalk® began in 2007 and was begun in order to promote early literacy, physical activity and family time by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, Vermont. She had noted that parents would stand still and chat while children engaged in an activity and wanted to create something that would have the entire family be active together.
