Concord Branch Library Partners with the CDDC to Create a “Progressive Story Book” Downtown
Nov 08, 2017 03:03PM ● Published by Melanie Heisinger
Senior Library Assistant Elizabeth Baltes said that, "Our goals for this story walk are (1) to engage parents and children by reading, (2) to encourage folks to spend time downtown, and (3) to build literacy skills while doing a fun activity." She continued to say, "This is a passive program which allows families to participate at their own pace without worrying about completing a form or competing for a prize."
When we asked how the idea came about, Wilkerson told us, "Basically, it started with librarians in Vermont. I first heard about it at a workshop where some NC librarians presented on their own stories."
