Enjoy Reading and the Outdoors at the Same Time!
WRI's StoryWalk® is a fun way to spend time outdoors while being active and learning something new! Beginning at the kiosk in our parking lot, you can read a children's story. With the help of NCW Libraries and A Book for All Seasons, WRI handpicks stories involving nature, different cultures and languages, and a reading level that is accessible to most children. Our goal is to change the book each month! Currently, Bird Watch by Christie Matheson is displayed on our StoryWalk®.
