Pop-Up Storybook Walk

The library’s “pop-up” storybook walk is a portable set of signs that we install around the city, in partnership with a community organization. We typically install our temporary storybook walks for three-week periods. If you are interested in hosting a temporary storybook walk in your community, please fill out this form.


The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, Vermont and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library.
