StoryWalk® pilot project for summer 2021!
February 11, 2021
The TD Summer Reading Club is pleased to announce a free StoryWalk® pilot project for summer 2021! A StoryWalk® is a fun, socially distanced activity that places a children’s book, page by page, on laminated poster boards along a path or in a park. Kids and their families have the opportunity to enjoy reading a book while strolling through their community.
This pilot project is free and available to libraries across Canada registered for the TD Summer Reading Club.
