Kiwanis Club Sparks Community Engagement With StoryWalk®

“At Kiwanis, our mission is to help children. This StoryWalk® project supports literacy, fitness, family, and community. We installed it at a local park and have already attracted hundreds of people. The feedback has been amazing and the community really appreciates the new attraction! Bringing families together out in nature to learn and exercise is what our mission is all about – and Pannier helped us make it happen.” —Jimi Plouffe

New StoryWalk® Exhibits for Tomahawk School District

Paula Norman, a librarian in the Tomahawk School District, installed twenty new StoryWalk® Exhibits this month. The Herb Kohl Foundation honored her leadership and innovative teaching this year with a grant, and Paula used that grant to continue giving to her community in a big way. These StoryWalk® Exhibits were installed at the elementary school playground where children can enjoy them during recess, and families can use them all year long.

StoryWalk® Gives New Meaning to a Walk in the Park

Communities around the world are experiencing the delightful and fun effects of StoryWalk® installations.  The idea started trending in 2007, when it was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, Vermont. Over the past year, the viral concept inspired a surge of installations as people searched for safe ways to incorporate learning in non-traditional environments. StoryWalk® is an innovative and interactive way for readers of all ages to enjoy a story, exercise, and the outdoors all at the same time.

Communities across the nation are experiencing the delightful and fun effects of StoryWalk® projects. This family-friendly activity involves reading a story as you follow the pages along a trail or path. The concept has been trending since it was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, Vermont in 2007 and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. StoryWalk® is a registered service mark owned by Ms. Ferguson.
