StoryWalk® at Hamilton Reservoir
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.
New StoryWalk® Unveiling on June 12
Join us on Wednesday, June 12 at 10:30am for the unveiling of the new 2019 story, “Mother Bruce” by Ryan T. Higgins!
Bruce the bear likes to keep to himself. That, and eat eggs. But when his hard-boiled goose eggs turn out to be real, live goslings, he starts to lose his appetite. And even worse, the goslings are convinced he’s their mother. Bruce tries to get the geese to go south, but he can’t seem to rid himself of his new companions. What’s a bear to do?
