Step into a good book with Richland Library’s first interactive Storywalk® in the Midlands, located at Doko Meadows Park (100 Alvina Hagood Circle, Blythewood). It offers a new opportunity for families to celebrate a love of reading, keep moving and experience a local park together.
Start at the walking trail near Blythewood Town Hall. Then view each page and take part in activities along a path that is easily visible and walkable for young readers. The featured book rotates seasonally with the current selection being “Rainbow Stew” by Cathryn Falwell.
To celebrate, we’re creating Edible Garden Carry-Out Kits, which are available at all 13 library locations while supplies last. We’re also hosting a special edition of Family Storytime from 10:30 – 11 a.m., Saturday, June 26 on our Facebook Page that spotlights “Rainbow Stew” and other read-a-likes.
The library is able to bring Storywalk® to our community thanks to support by the Town of Blythewood, SC Humanities, Prisma Health and WLTX. Storywalk® 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.
Be on the lookout for two additional Storywalk® locations in late summer and fall 2021.
