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 geared towards adults. Our current selection is the poem "The Raven" by Edgar Allan Poe. The poem is often noted for its musicality, stylized language, and supernatural atmosphere. 

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.
