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 two times a year.

Partnership Powers Library Displays

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.

Current Title

This summer we are featuring Slug in Love written by by Rachel Bright and illustrations by Nadia Shireen. Slug in Love was chosen as the PA One Book for 2024, and tells the story of Doug the Slug, who is on a quest for a hug and features lively and expressive illustrations perfect for young audiences. Through a heartwarming message of self-acceptance and expressing emotions, the book captures the essence of the PA One Book mission to instill a love for reading at an early age. 

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