The Dover Public Library and City of Dover Parks and Recreation are excited to bring StoryWalk to Silver Lake Park! The StoryWalk Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and was developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. StoryWalks are designed to promote exercise and literacy skills by taking a book apart and spreading it out along a trail. Families are invited to walk along the trail and read the book together. Discussion questions are provided with each page of the book to encourage parents to talk about the book with their children, which strengthens reading comprehension.

As part of downtown Dover’s First Friday celebration, we have a StoryWalk featuring The Dot by Peter Reynolds on display in merchant windows. Take a stroll around downtown Dover to read the whole story!
