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.
Serenoa Glade Preserve
The Boca Raton Public Library is pleased to announce the addition of a StoryWalk to the Serenoa Glade Preserve at George Snow Park in Boca Raton. From October 1 through November 30, 2021, enjoy the book, Busy Builders, Busy Week! by Jean Reidy. In this book, a cast of animal characters is building a new playground in a local park. Each day of the week contains a different construction plan as the steam-rolling, digging and planting get underway. The project comes together for a joyful, rhyming walking tour where young readers can learn the days of the week while watching everyone work as a team!

Bring your family over to the Pondhawk Natural Area StoryWalk adjacent to the Spanish River Library to read Just a Minute: A Trickster Tale and Counting Book, by Yuyi Morales. This spirited tribute to the rich traditions of Mexican culture is the perfect introduction to counting in both English and Spanish. This story will be up through October 30.
