Visit Our Award-Winning StoryWalks!

StoryWalk is a fun, educational activity that places a children’s storybook along a popular walking route in the community. Different books are displayed throughout the year to keep the StoryWalk experience fresh and promote future learning. 

In 2021, the City of Boca Raton's Public Library was selected as the winner of the City Spirit Award in the Florida Municipal Achievement Awards from the Florida League of Cities for the StoryWalk program. The City Spirit Award recognizes a single, specific citywide effort to successfully address a local need. For more information about the award, read the Florida League of Cities press release.

The national StoryWalk Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, Vermont, and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library.
