Locations About Submit Your Book

Come read a book while enjoying a stroll through a Raleigh park!

A StoryWalk ® allows park visitors to read pages of a children's book, one page at a time, as they walk through the park.  This is a great way to encourage reading while enjoying the outdoors!

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.

A few important things to know:

  • Featured books will rotate quarterly to one of our local parks or community centers. Authors may not request a specific location.
  • Requests to be features are not guaranteed and will be selected by a review committee.
  • We cannot guarantee that story boards will not be damaged by weather or patrons, moved or removed, or other circumstances beyond our control.
  • The City of Raleigh will create the storyboards, identify the park location, and promote the program.
  • A featured author may be asked to provide a sample book for the review committee if the book is not available for review online. They will also be asked to provide 3 books in total that are required to complete the StoryWalk ® boards.
