Ribbon Cutting | O’Fallon Public Library Story Walk at Thoman Park
“The O’Fallon Public Library is bigger than a building. For years, the library has offered digital resources like databases and ebooks that you can easily access from home. More recently, they have started a Homebound Delivery Service to get items to those in the community who cannot easily visit their location at 120 Civic Plaza. Today, the library expands its borders to nearby Thoman Park with a StoryWalk installation.
A StoryWalk is movement and literacy boosting project that places an illustrated children’s book, taken apart and displayed page by page, along a walking route. As you stroll down the trail, you’re directed to the next page in the story. This new installation joins others around the world. Story Walks have been installed in 50 states and 13 countries including, Germany, Canada, England, Bermuda, Russia, Malaysia, Pakistan and South Korea!
This project was made possible by the generous donations of the Friends of the O’Fallon Public Library in cooperation with O’Fallon’s Parks and Recreation Department.”
