April 2021:

Our StoryWalk should be going back up sometime soon!


Our StoryWalk check this morning was disheartening. We expected wind damage, but instead we found that sometime during the past couple days, the entire StoryWalk--except for the very first sign--was down. We will regroup and see what can be salvaged. To paraphrase the book we had up, you matter.

11/17/20: Our first StoryWalk went up at Choate Park around the pond this past weekend. Then there was a giant windstorm! On Monday, members of the Medway Lions Club, Julie Harrington from Parks and Recreation, and Ms. Diane and Ms. Audrey (hi) from the library visited Choate Park to repair wind damage. A few signs came off the posts, and one whole post came out of the ground. The post needed a little more help to get seated properly, but we fixed the signs with no trouble. Today I went over with some volunteer StoryWalkers to see how things were holding up. Everything was in good shape.

The StoryWalker walks much faster than I do.

So far so good! We have never put together a StoryWalk before, and Ms. Diane and I learned a lot while getting the signs ready for placement. We are looking forward to the next one! But we hope this one lasts for a few months. If you get to StoryWalk, drop us a line at and let us know how you liked it.
