A StoryWalk® combines two healthy activities, taking a walk and reading a book. It is a self-guided activity that presents a book page by page along a walking path. Typically, an activity is included with each story page, which participants are encouraged to complete.  StoryWalks® promotes early literacy learning, family engagement, and an appreciation of our community’s spaces and physical activity.

The Ephrata Public Library StoryWalk® is installed at the Ephrata Township Community Park (436 E. Fulton Street Ephrata, PA). It begins at the gravel walking path to the right of the playground. 

Our current StoryWalk® selection is "The Magical Yet" by Angela DiTerlizzi

Each of us, from the day we're born, is accompanied by a special companion - the Yet.  Can't tie your shoes? Yet! Can't ride a bike? Yet! Can't play the bassoon? Don't worry, Yet is there to help you out. The Magical Yet is the perfect tool to turn a negative into a positive when helping children cope with the inevitable difficult learning moments we all face.  Whether a child or an adult, this encouraging and uplifting book reminds us that we all have things we haven't learned...yet!

 

The Ephrata Public Library StoryWalk® was made possible by the partnership of the Ephrata Public Library, Northern Lancaster Hub, and Ephrata Township.

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.
