Winter StoryWalk®: A Snowy Day

Wednesday, November 18, at 9:00am - Monday, January 18     Add this event to your calendar
Location: Outside the Library

For families looking to get outdoors this winter, a StoryWalk® in downtown Middleton combines exercise, reading and winter fun. 

Come downtown to Middleton from Nov. 18 – Jan. 18 for an outdoor, interactive reading of The Snowy Day. The StoryWalk® takes readers on a 22-stop reading adventure to different businesses to read a page or two from the book with a coordinating activity. The map and businesses are numbered so that readers can follow the stops in order and find out what happens next in the story.

Begin at the Middleton Public Library to pick up a free map and guide to the StoryWalk®, as well as one free copy of the book, provided by Friends of the Middleton Public Library, while supplies last. The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats tells the story of Peter, a young Black boy, exploring the snowy world around him.

StoryWalk® maps are also available online at www.downtownmiddleton.com/storywalk

Safety guidelines: Please practice social distancing during your StoryWalk®, giving others six feet of space, and follow Dane County Public Health guidelines regarding COVID-19, including wearing face coverings indoors or in crowded spaces if 5 years or older, and staying home if sick or presenting symptoms. 

StoryWalk® is presented by Middleton Public Library and the DMBA. The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, Vt., and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library.
