The Mountain Home Public Library along with Mountain Home Parks & Rec are excited to announce an additional feature located along the walking path next to Legacy Park and a ribbon cutting was held on May 19th, 2023.
The inspiration came from the StoryWalk® project, created by Anne Ferguson when she worked for the Vermont Department of Health. Together with the Vermont Bicycle and Pedestrian Coalition and the Kellogg-Hubbard Library, this project combines the pleasures of reading wonderful children’s books aloud with all the joys and benefits of walking together outdoors. To personalize this attraction for our community, ours will be known as
The City of Mountain Home’s StoryStroll
Each story selected will have a special community guest narrator recording accessible through a posted QR code for each page so that anyone with a smartphone or tablet could scan it and hear the narration. The library is tickled to have this feature available and encourages families to get outside and enjoy this addition to the walking path.
Stories will be changed out on the first Monday of each month. Hidden within the StoryStroll, there will be a QR Code to enter into a monthly raffle for a chance to win a copy of the story for that month. This month’s story selection is Bear Says Thanks by Karma Wilson read by Pioneer Federal’s Community Development Officer, Amber Cobos.
Local businesses and organizations have helped to sponsor both the purchase of the current panels & books as well as additional panels so that we can have another StoryStroll placed in Richard Aguirre Park in the coming months.
