Press Release 5/13/2019 – New Story in StoryWalk Boxes

Friends of the Alamosa Public Library invite readers of all ages to come and read together while enjoying a walk around City Hall. Starting in front of the building near the parking lot, walk and read your way through the story. Displayed in both English and Spanish, each box contains a page of the story that encourages the reader to walk from one station to the next. The new story is this year’s One Colorado book winner, “Penguinaut!” By Marcie Colleen.

Orville lives at the zoo, surrounded by animal pals who go on exciting adventures. A hang gliding rhino! A deep-sea diving giraffe! Orville struggles to keep up, until one day he concocts an adventure all his own: build a spaceship and fly to the moon all by himself. Can one tiny penguin get there alone?

This national project was created by Anne Ferguson of Vermont, and was developed in collaboration with the Kellogg Hubbard Library.

StoryWalk is a community project that was started in 2016 by the Alamosa Literacy Council as a way to bring literacy to families. In 2018, Friends of the Alamosa Public Library took over the responsibility of the StoryWalk. Stories are changed out periodically.
