A StoryWalk® combines two healthy activities, taking a walk and reading a book. It is a self-directed activity for people of all ages which encourages participants to read a children’s picture book in stages while walking along a short path. Participants are encouraged to complete a simple activity at each page. StoryWalks® promote literacy, physical activity, parental involvement, and ties to the community. Lititz Public Library installed our first StoryWalk® in July of 2020 and has continued them ever since, even branching out to include the Downtown version during the 2020 Winter Holiday season.
Our current installation features Love Monster and the Last Chocolate by Rachel Bright. When Love Monster receives a box of chocolates as a gift, he has second thoughts about sharing them. In the end, Love Monster learns a valuable lesson about sharing. Participate in the StoryWalk® to discover the lesson on sharing with friends!
