Third StoryWalks Event Kicks Off at Sterling House Community Center

Colonial History and Crafts from Stratford Historical Society

“Forest to Shore StoryWalk Tour”.  StoryWalk 3, July 10th-16th – Sterling House.

Main Event: Colonial crafts and Stratford history with the Stratford Historical Society on Wednesday, July 12th at 6 p.m. in the Library Courtyard.

A StoryWalk is a book, with pages separated and laminated on wood stakes that are placed along a path or trail for people to walk and enjoy a story. The program is funded by a grant from the Connecticut State Library & Library Services and Technology Act.  The Tour features five StoryWalks each lasting about a week at various locations around Stratford. During the week of each StoryWalk there will be a “Main Event” program at the site. Topics will be relevant to the site.

People can pick up a Passport and Guide at the Stratford Library that lists all the sites, dates and Main Events. When people visit each StoryWalk, they can punch their passport with the hole puncher provided. Anyone who gets all five punches can return the Passport & Guide to the Library for a prize. Even though the stories featured at each walk are children’s books, anyone can participate. The Main Events are free and for all ages but do require registration on the Library website.

The schedule:

StoryWalk 3:  July 10th-16th – Sterling House.

Main Event: Colonial crafts and Stratford history with the Stratford Historical Society on Wednesday, July 12th at 6 p.m. in the Library Courtyard.
