At the Library
Did you know reading a book is literally a walk in the park? Thanks to Larry Weidner, our first story walk launched on Feb. 16. It is a new project for the library that combines physical activity and literacy while spending time together outdoors with family. It is currently located south of New Dawn in Sunset Park. The feedback from the Story Walk has been positive, and I am thankful it has withstood the abuse of late winter storms. With the ground still frozen there is still time to get out and enjoy some reading and walking.
Future walks will be set up in area parks and trails throughout the county beginning this spring.
