What is a StoryWalk®?

A StoryWalk is a fun, educational experience for children – and adults – to enjoy reading and the outdoors at the same time. Take a walk along the trail and read and interact with the book as you go!

The Lincoln Field StoryWalk® is made possible thanks to a collaboration between the Cary Library, Lexington Recreation & Community Programs, the Department of Public Works, and with support from the Recreation and Lincoln Park Subcommittees.  Funding for this project comes from donations to the Cary Library Foundation.

The Parker Meadow StoryWalk® is made possible thanks to a collaboration between Cary Library, the Town of Lexington Conservation Department and the Department of Public Works. The Parker Meadow StoryWalk® was made possible by a gift from Enterprise Bank.

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. StoryWalks® have been installed in all 50 states and at least 13 countries.
