What is a StoryWalk?
A StoryWalk transforms the pages of a children's book into signs that are laid out on a trail. Following the path of pages is a great way to keep your body and brain active and healthy!

The StoryWalk Project began in Vermont as temporary installations of laminated book pages. Temporary and permanent installations can now be found at museums, libraries, and parks across the country. Deerfield Township has adapted the original project to create a semi-permanent installation at Carter Park.

The StoryWalk Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Vermont Bicycle & Pedestrian Coalition and the Kellogg Hubbard Library.
