StoryWalk® is a fun and innovative way for people of all ages to exercise their bodies, as well as their minds. As you take your walk, you will come to posts which contain 2-page spreads of a picture book. By the time you have come full-circle, you will have read a book in its entirety.

StoryWalk® was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and was developed with the help of Rachel Senechal of the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. StoryWalks® have been installed in 50 states and 11 countries including, Germany, Canada, England, Bermuda, Russia, Malaysia and Pakistan. Thanks to the Village of Sherwood and our post sponsors, the Sherwood Branch Library has been able to bring StoryWalk® to the Sherwood, Ohio community.

Please share your Sherwood Branch Library StoryWalk® experience with us on social media using #dplslibraries and #SherwoodStoryWalk.

Bats in the Library

Brian Lies
Join the free-for-all fun at the public library with these book-loving bats! Shape shadows on walls, frolic in the water fountain and roam the book-filled halls until it’s time for everyone, young and old, to settle down into the enchantment of story time. Brian Lies’ joyful critters and their nocturnal celebration cast library visits in a new light. Even the youngest of readers will want to join the batty book-fest!
