Kids Storywalk In Dunsford, Bobcaygeon And Lindsay A Great Way To Pair Literacy With Outdoor Activity

KAWARTHA LAKES-Looking for something to do with the kids this weekend? Check out a storywalk.

A storywalk is where pages of a children’s book are posted on large yard signs stationed around a trail. This is a fun and educational activity that pairs literacy with physical activity and encourages families to get outside.

With libraries closed to in-person activities due to the Coronavirus pandemic this is a great way to keep kids interested in reading.

There are a few storywalks within the City of Kawartha Lakes.

If you’d like to check the book out from the library, click on the book title in the chart below. This will take you to the catalogue where you can place a hold.
