NCompass Live: Hastings StoryWalk: Walk, Read, Explore

872

Published on

The StoryWalk® Project combines family fun, exercise, and literacy into one great community activity. The concept involves posting pages of a book at certain intervals along a walking path. Librarian Jake Rundle will present lessons learned by the Hastings Public Library, especially in preparing materials for Nebraska wind and weather, and participant comments.

  • The idea came to us as a collaboration with Prairie Loft Outdoor Agricultural center just outside of town.Each year in April, we celebrate “planting” season and have a springfest activity for families at Prairie LoftThe first storywalks were part of Springfest and they were very “experimental.” We did two separate books and two separate paths, and we learned A LOT that would be useful for the future collaboration.
  • First experiment I would suggest be in a downtown or business area…not with posts. Or at least a “short” book As you can see…it’s a lot of work to build an actual storywalk so be prepared!
  • Several organizations worked together to make this happenNeeded help of Parks, Visitor Services, Kiwanis and Friends of HPL for fundingDowntown Center Association involved in downtown storywalkSeven locations posted in town, 6 outside and the 7th downtownWe divided up the work of deconstructing the books and mounting and had P&R set the posts.
