Introducing StoryWalk® at Hamilton Reservoir
Following our regularly scheduled Story Time in the Park on Wednesday, June 6, 2018, community families celebrated the unveiling of a new outdoor StoryWalk® at Hamilton Reservoir. This project was made possible through the collaborative efforts made by Palatine Library Foundation, Friends of the Library, Palatine Park District, and other local organizations. The cooperative project is a fun way to support reading and family engagement while sharing an interactive outdoor activity.
At the June 6 event, Palatine Library and Park District leaders held a a ribbon-cutting ceremony before staff shared the story “How Rocket Learned to Read” by Tad Hills. As families walk along the path, pages from the book are displayed in permanent posts and direct you from the beginning to the end of the story.
Come celebrate the brand new playgrounds that were designed with input from our community. Thanks to all who voted this spring for the amenities and color choices for Palatine’s newest playgrounds. Come to our free Playground Parties to celebrate two newly renovated playgrounds and enjoy giveaways, raffles, and activities.
