Storywalk at Exton Park

The Chester County Library installed a StoryWalk® in Exton Park in June 2017. The StoryWalk® is installed along a ½ mile paved walkway surrounding two playgrounds and a picnic area. The project consists of 20 reading stations, each featuring a page in a children’s storybook, which promotes health and literacy in young children by encouraging exercise and reading. The StoryWalk® will be updated three times a year.

The funding for this project was made possible by the Chester County Library Trust through a donation from the Pearl Foundation. The displays were installed by Voya Financial employees on their volunteer in-service day, in cooperation with the Chester County Library and the County’s Facilities & Parks Departments.

This summer we are featuring the Caldecott Honor-winning book A Couple of Boys Have the Best Week Ever written and illustrated by Marla Frazee. She wonderfully captures the very essence of summer vacation and what it means to be a kid in this moving and hilarious celebration of young boys, childhood friendships, and the power of the imagination.

The StoryWalk® is in Exton Park, located at 132 Church Farm Lane, Exton, PA.
