Lewis and Clark Branch Libraries Bring StoryWalk

HELENA-The Branch Libraries of the Lewis & Clark Library in East Helena, Augusta, Lincoln and the Bookmobile have teamed up to bring the community six StoryWalk® books that can be enjoyed by everyone. Lewis & Clark Library Bookmobile Librarian Bretagne Byrd explains, "We all know that reading is important and that getting outside for a walk is also important. We put the two together to provide the community a fun learning activity that everyone can enjoy!"  

Each StoryWalk® will be placed in a walkable location for the month of October. Participants will start at the post marked with a number one and read each page of the book while enjoying being outdoors. This is a great activity for families and everyone who enjoys a good book and a walk.

Each branch of the Lewis & Clark Library has chosen a different story, one that reflects aspects of their specific community. The East Helena Branch Library is providing Just Ask: Be Different, Be Brave, Be You by Sonia Sotomayor and Snail Crossing by Corey Tabor. The Augusta Branch Library is providing Rodeo Armadillo by Jan Brett. The Lincoln Branch Library is providing Bird Watch by Christie Matheson and Sulwe by Lupita Nyong'o. The Bookmobile Branch Library is providing Ready To Fly by Lea Lyon and A. LaFaye. In addition to the story, participants can read about each Branch of the library on post one of each StoryWalk®.

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.
