StoryWalk Series at Barnegat Library Steps Off June 28 

Jun 19, 2017

The Barnegat branch of the Ocean County Library will offer four “StoryWalk on Burr Street” programs for children to read and walk from the branch to the nearby Robert L. Horbelt Elementary School.

Participants can begin at either the library or school and walk along an adjoining sidewalk to read Ezra Jack Keats’ book Over in the Meadow. Laminated pages from this children’s book will be displayed along an outdoor path. As youngsters stroll down the trail, they will be directed to the next page of the story.

Children and their parents can enjoy the walks on the following dates: Tuesday, June 27, 1:30 to 3:30 p.m.;  Wednesday, July 12, 1:30 to 3:30 p.m.; Tuesday, July 25, 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.; and Tuesday, Aug. 8, 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

The concept of the StoryWalk was developed by the Kellogg-Hubbard Library in Montpelier, Vt. It has expanded to all 50 states and 11 countries, including Germany, Canada, England, Bermuda, Russia, Malaysia and Pakistan.
