Storywalks at the Boston Public Library

In partnership with the Boston Parks & Recreation Department and the Highland Street Foundation, the Boston Public Library is proud to present a series of wordless outdoor storywalks, beginning August 2021. Read a book as you walk around a park! For children's storywalks, visit the local branch library for an activity kit to accompany the story.

The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. Storywalk® is a registered service mark owned by Ms. Ferguson.
