Richland Library unveils new Storywalk location at Riverfront Park

November 10, 2021

Families can enjoy “I Am a Bird” at Riverfront Park

Step into a good book beginning November 12 with Richland Library’s third StoryWalk® in the Midlands, located at Riverfront Park South Entrance (312 Laurel Street, Columbia, SC 29201). StoryWalk® provides an opportunity for families to celebrate a love of reading, keep moving and enjoy a local park together.

As the fall begins and families soak up our cool and comfortable Carolina weather, we’re excited to share this interactive learning experience with our community.

Young readers are encouraged to follow along the trail, reading each page and participating in guided activities as they move along the path. Riverfront Park currently features  “I Am a Bird,” written by Dana Walrath and illustrated by Jaime Kim. The displayed book rotates seasonally.

After you enjoy “I Am a Bird” at Riverfront Park, keep your young reader moving by visiting to plan your next adventure with, “How Do You Wokka-Wokka? at Caughman Road Park and Rainbow Stew at Doko Meadows Park.

Richland Library brings StoryWalk® to our community thanks to support from South Carolina Humanities, Prisma Health, WLTX News19, the Richland County Recreation Commission, the Town of Blythewood, BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina and the City of Columbia Parks and Recreation Department.
