Our New StoryWalk is Installed!

Thu, 09/10/2020 - 3:27pm -- Emily S

We are so excited to invite you to try our new StoryWalk at the Bedford Village Common!

Pick a nice day, pack a picnic, and head over to the common to take a stroll and enjoy Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes by Eric Litman and James Dean.
As you stroll through the common, you’ll see pages of the story installed next to the path. Page 1 is right after the arch where you enter the common and the story will take you over the bridge, around the gazebo, and back over the bridge to end back near the arch. All pages are numbered so you’ll know where to head next.

StoryWalks have become increasingly popular this year as they offer an activity tied to reading that is easily socially distanced. The StoryWalk Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Vermont Bicycle & Pedestrian Coalition and the Kellogg Hubbard Library in 2007. More StoryWalks have been popping up around New Hampshire lately, and we are very excited to have one here in Bedford.

If you try the StoryWalk, feel free to let us know! We’d love to hear your feedback, so feel free to send an email to esennott@bedfordnh.org to tell us about your experience.

Special thanks go to the Derry Medical Center Charitable Foundation for sponsoring our Storywalk and to Kirk Fountaine for installing it.
