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.
This month, the Ephrata Public Library StoryWalk® is featuring creative writing from Ephrata Area School district sixth graders. Each story post contains at least one original short story and illustration created by students. Students worked in small groups for this project.
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.
