Randolph residents have something new and exciting to enjoy following the opening of the new StoryWalk® on the path between Veterans Community Park and Doby Road. This project to bring books to the great outdoors is a collaborative effort between the Randolph Township Library and the Randolph Township Department of Parks, Recreation and Community Services.
A StoryWalk is an innovative approach to encourage people of all ages to get out and walk while reading a wonderful children’s picture book. Pages of the book are displayed along the path inviting families, children and others to read the pages as they walk along. StoryWalks have been installed in all fifty states and thirteen other countries.
Our StoryWalk begins in Veterans Community Park located on Calais Road and can be accessed from the path near the community garden or the path that goes past the pickleball courts. The display continues along the path to Doby Road where you turn around to read the remaining display units on the way back.
This is a permanent installation to be enjoyed while the park is open.
We invite you to return often to discover what new books the librarians have selected. The library will announce new titles on the library website, Facebook page, Twitter and the library’s weekly email newsletter which you can sign up for on their website.
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.
