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.

Peep and Ducky Rainy Day Book CoverVisit the StoryWalk at the Serenoa Glade Preserve at George Snow Park in Boca Raton from February 1 through April 30, 2023, to enjoy the book, Peep and Ducky Rainy Day, by David Martin. When Peep visits Ducky on a rainy day, the little pals have no trouble finding things to do. Inside, there is a tent to build and a pillow fight to be had. And outside, with the help of galoshes and umbrellas, it's fun to captain a boat -- until a whoosh of wind and a clap of thunder send them running back in! Follow up your visit with some fun at the adjoining playground!
