StoryWalk® at the Five Road Recreation Field - Walk the nature trail and indulge in a good book! Closed for the season - will re-open in May 2023.
Our StoryWalk® was created in 2018 due to the efforts of past librarian, Becky Ames, as a collaboration between the library and the Town of Carmel. In 2022, the Carmel Elementary School teamed with the library to produce several StoryWalk® books so that books could be changed monthly during the season. This is an ever-evolving community project.
The Story Walk Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Vermont Bicycle and Pedestrian Coalition and the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. Storywalk® is a registered service mark owned by Ms. Ferguson
