Visit Our Award-Winning StoryWalks!
StoryWalk is a fun, educational activity that places a children’s storybook along a popular walking route in the community. Different books are displayed throughout the year to keep the StoryWalk experience fresh and promote future learning.
In 2021, the City of Boca Raton's Public Library was selected as the winner of the City Spirit Award in the Florida Municipal Achievement Awards from the Florida League of Cities for the StoryWalk program. The City Spirit Award recognizes a single, specific citywide effort to successfully address a local need. For more information about the award, read the Florida League of Cities press release.
The national StoryWalk Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, Vermont, and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library.
Patch Reef Park
Please welcome a brand-new StoryWalk in Patch Reef Park! In December, January, and February, enjoy the book, Little Skink's Tail by Janet Halfmann. Have fun pretending to try on tail after tail when Little Skink removes hers to escape a pesky crow! Perfect for acting out while reading and enjoying a stroll in the park.

Serenoa Glade Preserve
Visit the StoryWalk at the Serenoa Glade Preserve at George Snow Park to enjoy the book, Chugga Chugga Choo Choo, by Emma Garcia. All aboard, and all join in as the cheerful little train chugs past the seaside, the farm, the forest, the city, and into the station for a nice long rest. Along the way, a flock of noisy seagulls and blackbirds, pigeons and geese hop on for the ride. Kids will have fun looking at Emma Garcia’s colorful, collaged landscapes and counting all the honking, cooing, tweeting birds. Follow up your visit with some fun at the adjoining playground.
