Columbia Branch of Lorraine Public Library, 13824W.River road, Celebrated the opening of Story Walk.
Beginning at the library and ending at the nearby Columbia Township Park, Story Walk features framed photos of children’s fairy tales along the trail.
StoryWalk® is complete and ready for the general public to enjoy freely.
Due to the ongoing bad weather, the Story Walk® ribbon cut was canceled on July 12th.
“We are honored to offer StoryWalk in Colombia with a bequest from a former librarian,” said Anastasia Diamond-Ortiz, Director of Public Library Systems, Lorain. “We hope families, caregivers, teachers and students will enjoy reading stories together in the beautiful Columbia Township Park.”
The park is near Columbia West River Road and State Highway 82.
Currently on display is Kevin Henkes’ “Summer Song”.
All the stories chosen for StoryWalk are based on what’s happening near the library, says branch manager John Gascott.
“All stories are about the park’s seasons and other attributes,” Gascot said. “Each book has its own theme, as well as its own art style.”
StoryWalk aims to attract readers of all ages, as well as anyone who accompanies libraries and parks.
“All stories are understandable to very young readers,” Gascot said. “They can read with parents, caregivers, grandparents, or siblings.”
Gascot and other library staff hope that StoryWalk will draw more attention to both the library and the park and encourage children to start reading more often.
“The playground was always there,” Gascot said. “But now there is something that kids can read too.”
