Library, city will partner on StoryWalk at Westlake Rec Center
Westlake Porter Public Library and the City of Westlake are partnering to provide a StoryWalk at the Westlake Recreation Center. A StoryWalk is an interactive way for young readers and their caregivers to enjoy reading and nature at the same time.
Laminated pages from a children’s picture book will be displayed on special posts along a trail on the Recreation Center grounds. As you stroll down the trail you will be directed toward the next page of the story. StoryWalks engage young readers and are a great way to practice active reading skills.
The StoryWalk will be installed later this year when the weather permits. More information about the exact trail location will be made available then.
Funding for the StoryWalk will come from a "Party @ Porter with Our Friends" fundraiser at the library on Saturday, March 2, from 7-10 p.m. Tickets are on sale now for $30 each and will be available at the door for $35. The ticket price includes vouchers for two drinks, entertainment by Red Light Roxy and samples of food from local restaurants. Beer and wine will be provided by local brewers and distributors. Tickets may be purchased with cash or check at the Library’s Circulation Desk or from a Friends of Porter Library board member.
