There is so much to explore at the library, inside and out! Stop by anytime to enjoy an outdoor story at our newest StoryWalk set up here on the library grounds!
Stroll along the path that circles the building while enjoying the hilarious adventure concocted by mischievous Fox in “Fox and the Bike Ride” by Corey R. Tabor. The StoryWalk begins at our entrance to Delaware Avenue.
Our StoryWalks are supported by funds from the New York State Library Family Literacy Library Services Program and the Upper Hudson Library System.
