The Gloucester County Library System, (GCLS) in partnership with the Woolwich Township Parks & Recreation Department recently installed StoryWalk® at Locke Ave Park.
A StoryWalk® is a fun, educational activity that provides a year-round family activity that combines the outdoors with literacy.
“The StoryWalk is a creative way to inspire kids to get active and read while enjoying the outdoors,” said Director Robert M. Damminger. “It’s another collaboration between the borough and the library, and I’m excited to see families take advantage of it.”
“I am looking forward to seeing families enjoy the stories along the path. It’s a safe and easy way to have fun at the park and encourages reading outside of the normal setting,” said Assemblyman Adam Taliaferro.
Visitors can start at the installation’s “welcome” page and read a story page by page as they walk through the park.
“The Gloucester County Library System continues to promote literacy inside and outside of the library. From their weekly book clubs to their online programming, the Gloucester County Library System has something for everyone,” said Commissioner Lyman Barnes, liaison to the Gloucester County Library System.
Locke Avenue Park is located at 58 Lock Ave in Woolwich.
The Locke Avenue Park Storywalk was instituted by GCLS Swedesboro Library Branch in partnership with the Woolwich Department of Parks and Recreation.
