Kingston Frontenac Public Library (KFPL) is holding a StoryWalk at Oso Beach in Sharbot Lake. Offering family fun and learning while encouraging physical activity, this StoryWalk will be a leisurely walk along the beach while reading pages from a book.

On Saturday, Jul. 8, 2023, from 10 a.m. to noon, families can enjoy a leisurely walk along the beach while reading pages from the bilingual picture book Treasure by Mireille Messier. According to a release from the library, while families make their way through the pages, library staff will be on hand to guide visitors through related activities, making for a fun and engaging experience for everyone. KFPL is encouraging attendees to snap some photos along the way and share them online using the hashtag #KFPLStoryWalk.

“The StoryWalk program has been a huge success, and we’re excited to bring it to Oso Beach,” said Brianne Peters, Librarian, Children’s Services. “We encourage everyone to come out and spend time in this beautiful outdoor setting.”

According to the release, the StoryWalk Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, Vermont, and developed in collaboration with the Vermont Bicycle and Pedestrian Coalition and the Kellogg Hubbard Library. This event is sponsored by the Friends of the Kingston Frontenac Public Library.
