Longview StoryWalks

Project tags:

community engagement & outreach

digital youth & youth services

From our experience working in Longview, WA as a Longview Public Library employee and a Head Start Teacher Assistant, we noticed a need for families to engage with books, the outdoors, and each other. StoryWalks seemed like the perfect solution. From a Google Forms survey, a guest book, and informal conversations, our results showed that the approximately 187 participants overwhelmingly enjoyed the experience and wanted a permanent StoryWalk in our city. Since then our sponsor has secured the funding, we have quotes from vendors, and we are awaiting approval from Parks and Recreation to install a permanent StoryWalk.
