What Is Storywalk®?

     StoryWalk® is a fun and innovative way for people of all ages to exercise their bodies, as well as their minds.  Take a leisurely stroll on a path and read a story while getting some fresh air! Findlay's original StoryWalk® is located in beautiful Riverside Park. The path leads you clockwise under a canopy of tall trees starting at the bandshell as the story continues through the park and ends at the Waterfalls Pavilion. The second StoryWalk® was installed in 2021 at the Benton Ridge Park, and the third in 2022 at the Findlay City Schools Preschool. The StoryWalk® at the Findlay City Schools Preschool was made possible by a grant from the Federal Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), awarded by the State Library of Ohio. 

     A special thank you to the Hancock County Park District and the City of Findlay for installing StoryWalk® at Riverside Park, and to Veer Mehta for coordinating and completing the installation of the Findlay City Schools Preschool StoryWalk® as his Eagle Scout project.      

     StoryWalk® was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, Vermont, and developed in collaboration with the Vermont Bicycle and Pedestrian Coalition and the Kellogg-Hubbard Library.  For more information, please call us at 419-422-1712.

Emile and the Field 

 by Kevin Young     

     Emile loves the field close to his home--in spring, summer, and fall, when it gives him bees and flowers, blossoms and leaves. But not as much in winter, when he has to share his beautiful, changeable, ever-present field with other children...and their sleds. This relatable and lyrical ode to one boy's love for his neighborhood field celebrates how spending time in nature allows children to dream, to imagine...and even to share.
