StoryWalks® at Linde Park and the Fairgrounds Family Park

June 4

Free

The San Juan Island Library, in partnership with Island Rec, are happy to launch two new StoryWalks® in Friday Harbor. Enjoy the stories at John O. Linde Community Park and the Family Park at the Fairgrounds. The StoryWalks® can be viewed during open park hours starting Memorial Day!

A StoryWalk® is a creative way for people to enjoy literacy and the outdoors at the same time. Laminated pages from picture books are attached to signs that are placed along popular walking paths for children and adults to see and interact with as they explore the parks. Suggested activities that go along with the story are featured on each sign to promote healthy movement and exercise.

The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. StoryWalks® have been installed in 50 states and more than 13 countries, including Canada, Malaysia, England, and South Korea. The 2022 StoryWalks® in Friday Harbor are funded through a grant courtesy of The Women’s Fund of SJICF.
