StoryWalk at Al Lease Park

We are delighted to announce the installation of an all-new, permanent StoryWalk® in Kent at Al Lease Park. The StoryWalk® was created in partnership with Kent Parks and Recreation and made possible by a very generous gift from the Friends of Kent Free Library.

StoryWalks combine literacy with physical activity, placing large book pages at regular intervals along a walking path, encouraging visitors to walk (or run, or skip, or hop) as they read the book, enjoy the pictures, and follow activity prompts along the way.

The StoryWalk® opened on August 31, 2023. Find the start of the StoryWalk® near the playground. Then, follow the path around the lake to read the story. The inaugural book selected is Goodbye Summer, Hello Autumn by Kenard Pak 

Featured stories will be switched quarterly. Stay tuned for the next installation in December!

The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, Vermont and developed in collaboration with the Kellog-Hubbard Library. StoryWalk® is a registered service mark owned by Ms. Ferguson.
