StoryWalk in Downtown Ironton

Kick-off the summer by participating in our StoryWalk!

A StoryWalk is a fun, educational activity that places a children's story along a walking route in a community.

The library, in partnership with several local businesses, has implemented our StoryWalk in downtown Ironton. The walk begins at the front entrance of the Ironton Library (321 South 4th Street) and features reading stations in the windows of several downtown locations, before ending back at the library.

Our StoryWalk features the picture book, Bark George, from author-illustrator Jules Feiffer.

When George's mother tells her son to bark, George goes "Meow," which definitely isn't right because George is a dog. When she asks him again, he goes "Oink." What's going on with George? Readers will delight at the surprise ending!

A StoryWalk is a great way for children and adults to enjoy the outdoors and reading. It also supports literacy, a healthy lifestyle, and parent/caregiver involvement.

Bark George will be on display from June 1st through July 31st.
