DBDA, library announce Story Walk
The Downtown Boone Development Association and the Watauga County Public Library announce a new collaboration: Story Walk in downtown Boone.
The downtown Boone Story Walk places a laminated page or set of pages from a children's book in downtown storefront windows. Children and their families can walk from store to store reading the book while enjoying downtown Boone.
The goal of the Story Walk project is to encourage families to be outside, increase exercise and promote reading.
The Downtown Boone Halloween Story Walk begins Oct. 22 and concludes on Nov. 6. A special Downtown Boone Story Walk kickoff party will be held at the Watauga County Library on Saturday, Oct. 26, from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Activities include the Downtown Boone Story Walk with Mayor Loretta Clawson, followed by arts, crafts and refreshments in the library's meeting room.
The Downtown Boone Halloween Story Walk begins at the Watauga County Library. During the library's normal hours of operation stop by the Youth Service's desk to pick up your Story Walk map. The map contains directions and instructions for the Downtown Boone Story Walk as well as an optional word search. Once the children have finished the Story Walk, they may stop by the Library for a special Halloween prize.
