Children at the Voorheesville Public Library

StoryWalk® is an innovative and delightful way for children and families to enjoy reading and the outdoors at the same time! The Voorheesville Public Library thanks the Upper Hudson Library System for supporting this grant-funded project and the Town of New Scotland for co-sponsoring. Thank you to Ken Guyer, Highway Superintendent, Halsey Brown, Brian Strauss, Ray Ginter and some of the Boy Scouts from Troop 73  for their help with the installation. The StoryWalk® is located at Wallace Park on Swift Rd. in the walking/running loop through the woods by the playground. Walk, read, and enjoy!

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.
