STORYWALK AT VANCE STREET PARK

    

Enjoy reading while walking along the Richland Creek Trail at Vance Street Park in Waynesville. Pages from a children's picture book are placed in display posts within sight-distance of one another. Get lost in a book while exercising and spread the joy of reading! 

The Storywalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. This Storywalk® was made possible by the Medford Fund from The Community Foundation of Western North Carolina and the Haywood County Public Library Foundation.
