Zyl­stra Lake Trail Loop at Zyl­stra Lake Pre­serve, San Juan Island

Take a read­ing adven­ture this Fall! Now through the month of Novem­ber, the San Juan Coun­ty Land Bank and San Juan Island Library are host­ing a Pop Up Sto­ry­Walk™ at Zyl­stra Lake Pre­serve fea­tur­ing Thor Hanson’s Bartholomew Quill: A Crow’s Quest to Know Who’s Who.

A Sto­ry­Walk™ is a cre­ative way for chil­dren to enjoy the out­doors and read a book with their fam­i­ly and friends. Pages of a children’s book are put on signs and placed along the trail. Walk, skip, or hop along the trail and read the sto­ry, step-by-step and page-by-page!

For a spe­cial treat, Thor Han­son will lead a walk and read the sto­ry aloud Fri­day, Novem­ber 5. The event begins at 10am. Space is lim­it­ed – please email youthservices@sjlib.org to reg­is­ter. A pub­lic shut­tle, cour­tesy of the San Juan Island Library, will be pro­vid­ed to the pro­gram location.

The first Sto­ry­Walk™ Project was cre­at­ed by Anne Fer­gu­son of Mont­pe­lier, VT and devel­oped with the help of Rachel Senechal, Kel­logg Hub­bard Library. There are now more than 300 Sto­ry­Walk™ projects through­out Cana­da and the Unit­ed States.

For more infor­ma­tion, please con­tact the San Juan Island Library at youthservices@sjlib.org or Tan­ja Williamson at tanjaw@sjclandbank.org.
