StoryWalk® at the Ephrata Public Library


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 this month is "Lost" by Sam Usher.  Lost is a story about a boy and his granddad spending the morning gathering materials to make a sled.  When they take it out for a spin, they end up searching for a lost dog.  Their snowy adventure takes them all the way to the Arctic, where they are finally able to find the dog - and her new friends!

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.
