Story Walk

Enjoy our Story Walk, located at Goshen Park. The current story is A Few Beautiful Minutes: Experiencing a Solar Eclipse by Kate Allen Fox.

What is a Story Walk?
The Mechanicsburg Public Library StoryWalk® is a delightful, innovative way for children — and adults — to enjoy reading and the outdoors at the same time. The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. Storywalk® is a registered service mark owned by Ms. Ferguson.

How was the Story Walk funded?
Mechanicsburg Public Library is grateful for the support of United Way of Clark, Champaign, and Madison Counties in providing initial funding for this project. The StoryWalk® was also funded by the American Rescue Plan: Humanities Grants for Libraries, which is an initiative of the American Library Association (ALA) made possible with funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) through the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021.
