StoryWalk at the Community Center

Visit our newest StoryWalk® at the STW Community Center located at 1332 Middletown Avenue, Northford. StoryWalk® connects families and young readers with nature, outdoor exploration and reading. Pages from William’s Winter Nap by Linda Ashman; illustrated by Chuck Groenink have been transformed into signs and displayed along the tennis courts at the Community Center. Follow the path of pages as you read the story of William and his woodland friends. One by one a different animal arrives at William’s door looking for shelter. Tap, tap, tap… knock, knock, knock… is there room for one more?

How it works:

Look for a Take-and-Make bag at either the Atwater or Edward Smith Library. It includes the supplies needed to make your own hibernation scene with a bear. Help him snuggle up in his cave to get ready for a long winter’s nap.

Bundle up for a winter walk and read our featured story. Afterwards, stop by either Library to pick up a treat! Be sure to enter your name in a raffle to win a copy of William’s Winter Nap.

This StoryWalk® is a collaboration between North Branford Parks and Recreation and North Branford Public Libraries. We hope this interactive, family-friendly activity encourages a lifelong love of reading and the great outdoors. 

The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. StoryWalk® is a registered service mark owned by Ms. Ferguson.

The Stanley T. Williams Community Center is located at 1332 Middletown Avenue in Northford. The pages of the StoryWalk are located along the fence by the tennis courts.
