Take a StoryWalk in Tallman Mountain State Park

June 26, 2020 by

Our StoryWalk is now up! Take a walk at Tallman Mountain State Park and read a children’s book at the same time. Our StoryWalk® features Gaia Cornwall’s “Jabari Jumps”—a warmhearted story about bravery and trying something new. As you take a short walk, you’ll follow numbered sign posts that display pages of the book. Everyone who finishes the StoryWalk® will have a chance to win a copy of Jabari Jumps.

Park in the parking lot off 9W (across from the Mini Golf and beside the South Picnic Area) and take the Orange Trail to read the book!

Two Little Trains

June 23, 2020 by

Now that you’ve read Goodnight Moon and The Little Engine That Could three million times, check out Two Little Trains just released in March for the younger set. This Margaret Wise Brown original has new illustrations by Greg Pizzoli. Updated from the 1949 edition and the Dillon illustrated 2001 edition, the latest remake will appeal to preschool train lovers. Amazon recommends it as the perfect baby shower gift, but we encourage you to order it for free today and enjoy it with curbside pickup at the library!
