Igiugig Tribal Library was recently awarded a small grant from the Alaska State Library to create our very own story walk in Igiugig. “StoryWalk® is an innovative and delightful way for children — and adults! — to enjoy reading and the outdoors at the same time. Laminated pages from a children's book are attached to wooden stakes, which are installed along an outdoor path. As you stroll down the trail, you're directed to the next page in the story. StoryWalks® have been installed in 50 states and 13 countries including, Germany, Canada, England, Bermuda, Russia, Malaysia, Pakistan and South Korea! StoryWalk® was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and has developed with the help of Rachel Senechal, formerly of the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. The site for our first story walk is yet to be determined, but when it is installed and ready, we will post on the Igiugig Infozone and the Library’s Facebook page, Igiugig Naaqivik. Parents, if you have favorite children’s books from your own childhood you would like to see appear in story walk form, please let us know!
