Fall Programs and Events
Some programs will be held virtually through Zoom meetings or on our Facebook page. You do not need a Facebook account to view the programs. Recordings will be on Facebook for at least one week for you to view at your convenience.
Storywalk in the Children’s Garden
It’s as easy as a walk in the park. Stroll through our Children’s Garden and enjoy our StoryWalk! Pages from a children’s book will be displayed along a path and you can read and follow along as you take in the garden and the outdoors. There will be a new book displayed every few weeks. It’s a great way to practice active reading, get a little exercise, and enjoy the weather.
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.
