StoryWalk in De Groff Park
What is a StoryWalk®? It is an innovative way for children and adults to enjoy picture books, reading, the outdoors, and exercise all at the same time! The Friends of the Library’s first “fifteen panel” StoryWalk® is on the sand trail in De Groff Park (daylight hours, parking is limited). This first book will be up through the end of December. Don’t forget to check out the back of the StoryWalk® panels for Library photos, facts, and details on how Lighthouse Point households can get a FREE copy of the book from the Friends. Since a StoryWalk is for ALL AGES the Friends encourage adults who live in Lighthouse Point who have enjoyed the StoryWalk, to request a FREE book to share with a child in their family (niece, nephew, grandchild, etc.). This project is sponsored by the Friends of the Library and the City of Lighthouse Point.
