New StoryWalk® – Mr. Tiger Goes Wild by Peter Brown

Our new StoryWalk® for July features the imaginative picture book Mr. Tiger Goes Wild by Peter Brown. You are invited to walk around the library building and enjoy this fun story on the following dates (weather permitting, of course–precipitation and winds of 13+ mph can be a challenge):
Friday, July 16:  10:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.
Monday-Tuesday, July 19-20:  depending on thunderstorm threat, perhaps just in the morning
Thursday, July 22:  10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
More dates to come!
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 installed along an outdoor path. As you stroll along the walkway, you’re directed to the next page in the story.
StoryWalk® was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and was developed with the help of Rachel Senechal, Kellogg-Hubbard Library.
