BOONE — The Downtown Boone Development Association and the Watauga County Public Library will once again host a downtown Boone Fall StoryWalk beginning Oct. 7, also First Friday in downtown, and concluding on Nov. 14.
Families, schools and community groups are encouraged to participate in this family-friendly downtown program.
The goal of the StoryWalk project is to encourage families to play outside, increase exercise and promote reading. The downtown Boone Fall StoryWalk places a laminated page or set of pages from a children’s book in downtown store front windows. Children and families stroll from business to business reading the book while traveling through downtown Boone.
The fall StoryWalk selection is “The Busy Little Squirrel” by Nancy Tafuri.
The downtown Boone Fall StoryWalk starts at the Watauga County Public Library located at 140 Queen St. and follows Depot and West King Streets ending at Melanie’s Food Fantasy.
Parking for StoryWalk participants is available at the library and the Queen and Depot street parking areas.
