Story Walk

The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. StoryWalk® is registered service mark owned by Ms. Ferguson. StoryWalk® is an innovative and delightful way for children — and adults! — to enjoy reading and the outdoors at the same time. As you stroll down a trail, you're directed to the next page in the story. When you reach the end of the story, we encourage you to take some time reflecting on the story with discussion questions. We include a virtual guest book-so we know who visited!

Seniors Living Well Series:

The March Class at Kinsley Senior Center discussed how technology can make our lives easier and ways we can use technology safely.  Common scams and hacks were highlighted as well as tools to secure our accounts, tips for creating secure passwords, and ways to find our passwords when we need them.

Art and Mind: 

In March, a fun group of women gathered to create art journals at the Nora Larabee Memorial Library.  Art journaling uses color, images, and targeted questions to process and express thoughts and emotions that might be difficult to identify in traditional ways.  Participants are encouraged to let go of perfection or thoughts of “I’m not artistic.”, and instead relax into the process of mixing color, finding images that have meaning, and allowing our minds to think productively.  Look for more of these classes to be offered in Edwards and Stafford Counties soon!
