Story Walk® returning for a second viewing in July.

One of our most popular programs last summer was StoryWalk® -- a delightful and innovative approach encouraging people of all ages to get out and walk while enjoying wonderful children’s books posted on stakes at kids’ eye level. Hundreds came out to read and view the books, each sponsored by a local organization.

This year, StoryWalk® will be held on Saturday and Sunday, July 15-16, at the Monk Botanical Gardens, 1800 N. First Ave. in Wausau, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. There is no charge for admission.

The event is co-sponsored with the Marathon County Public Library. The Woodson Art Museum will conduct an art-making activity on the Memory Plaza during the event.

Also, at the entrance, Girl Scouts will be collecting used children’s books to be made available in our Little Free Library, located at the Treehouse.
