StoryWalks® are a series of permanent signs designed to connect reading and learning with physical activity. A self-paced, family-friendly activity, the signs are spread out to encourage residents of all ages to read, move and enjoy the outdoors.
The original StoryWalk® project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, Vt., and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library to promote literacy.
Fargo currently has two StoryWalks® that feature books which change every few months. These StoryWalks® are a free activity available during regular park hours.
Brunsdale Park StoryWalk®
The Brunsdale Park StoryWalk is located at 1702 27th Ave. S. in Fargo. The StoryWalk begins on the northwest end of the park near the playground and extends to the south along the trail before returning to end near the playground.
The first picturebook featured in the new Brunsdale Park StoryWalk is Move by Steve Jenkins and Robin Page.
Fargo’s Brunsdale Park StoryWalk project was made possible with support from the Fargo Public Library, the Fargo Park District, the Fargo Park District Foundation, and the Fargo Park District Foundation Matching Grant Program.
Main Library StoryWalk®
The Main Library StoryWalk is a temporary installation located to the north of the library in the plaza between the downtown Fargo Public Library and the Fargo Civic Center.
The interactive picturebook Tap the Magic Tree by Christie Matheson is the featured fall story and will remain up through the end of October weather permitting. Look for a new book beginning Nov. 2!
