Book-loving families in the Midlands will have the chance to step into a good story and enjoy an interactive experience in Richland County.
Richland Library is launching a second StoryWalk location at Caughman Road Park (2733 Trotter Rd., Hopkins).
Families can start at the walking trail near the oak-lined tree entrance and travel around the park's multi-use athletic fields to view each page and take part in activities. The half-mile long path is both easily visible and walkable for young readers.
The current featured title is "How Do You Wokka-Wokka?," written by Elizabeth Bluemle and illustrated by Randy Cecil. Book selections rotate seasonally.
Richland library is creating StoryWalk-themed carry-out kits that highlight different elements in the book, including maracas, sidewalk chalk and bubbles. Kits are available at all 13 library locations while supplies last.
Doko Meadows Park in Blythewood is another StoryWalk location featuring "Rainbow Stew" by Cathryn Falwell. The library intends to add a third StoryWalk location this fall.
