In case you’re wondering what those story book pages are doing up in various businesses downtown, it’s because the Rotary Club of Slave Lake Public Library is hosting its second storybook walk.
“As we had a lot patrons asking for another storybook walk after our first one held last fall we are hosting a Spring Storywalk for the Month of May,” says library manager Lana Gutowski. “Our feature book is The Kissing Hand by Audrey Penn, a favourite among many readers.”
For those who don’t know what a storybook walk is, Gutowski says pages of the book will be in windows of various businesses around town.
“You can read the story by following the route of participating businesses where you will stop to read a few pages of the ongoing story that will be posted in a front window,” she says. “There will be a dozen stops along the way and participants can enjoy the walk anytime of the day as long as they pick up the story walk instructions and map at the Public Library during open hours.”
Gutowski adds, “Come back in to the library to fill out a comment card and enter your name in a draw to win an awesome prize. Get out, get some fresh air, get some exercise, and get reading!”
The library is open Monday to Thursday from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.
