SPRINGFIELD, Vt. – Springfield Town Library is kicking off the summer reading program with a StoryWalk on Toonerville Trail starting June 27.
StoryWalk is an innovative way to enjoy reading and the outdoors at the same time. Laminated pages from a children’s book are installed along an outdoor path. As you stroll down the trail, readers are directed to the next page in the story. Located at the start of Toonerville Trail, also the home of the Springfield Farmer’s Market, this StoryWalk is an outdoor reading experience.
The book chosen for our first StoryWalk is “Thunder Underground” by Jane Yolen. This is a collection of poems that takes readers on an expedition underground, exploring everything from animal burrows, human creations, to caves and magma. This StoryWalk is hosted by the Springfield Town Library with the support of Springfield Parks and Recreation and the Vermont Department of Libraries.
Enjoy reading this book while walking or riding the Toonerville Trail. The pages are spaced to offer room for social distancing, please be courteous as people adhere to social distancing guidelines.
