Public libraries introduce outdoor children's books
Public libraries are offering StoryWalks® as a fun and safe alternative to regular library programming so families can read and exercise together.
Beginning today, English and French children’s storybooks will be displayed and rotated across parks in Prince Edward Island to promote literacy and physical activity.
“This is a fantastic initiative which brings Island families together to read, exercise and enjoy the outdoors. I am proud of our public libraries who continue to respond to the needs of families by providing free and creative ways to safely educate our children.”
- Education and Lifelong Learning Minister Brad Trivers
The PEI Public Library service will be offering the first set of StoryWalks® in the Veterans’ Memorial park in Summerside until Wednesday, November 4. The following storybooks will be displayed:
- Fox and Squirrel Make a Friend by Canadian author and illustrator Ruth Ohi
- Une visite inattendue by PEI author Anne-Marie Rioux
This project is made possible with support from TD Bank and the PEI Writer’s Guild.
