StoryWalk® is an outdoor reading experience created to promote physical activity, early literacy and family time together in nature. A vividly illustrated book will be deconstructed and shared page by page as you stroll, walk, skip or run along a path by the amphitheater next to the Burlington County Library in Westampton. Literacy tips and activity challenges will entertain your whole family along the way.

With the help of our community partners, StoryWalk® is a new permanent installation. We invite you to keep coming back to discover new books and activities that celebrate nature, diversity and community.

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.
