Head to the Mile Around Woods at McCullough House to enjoy a StoryWalk! Give the library a call or check our Facebook page for exact dates that the event will be open. What is a StoryWalk? StoryWalk is a fun, educational activity that places the pages from a children’s story along a walking route. As you walk and read, you are building children’s interest and encouraging healthy outdoor activity. Don’t forget to sign the guestbook on your way in or snap a picture to put on our Facebook page!
