In collaboration with the Elmhurst Park District and local Eagle Scout candidate, Tyler Janiak, the Library is excited to debut Elmhurst’s community StoryWalk® Project, located in Eldridge Park. The first panel can be found near the playground and follows the path that goes west, between the soccer fields.

Tomorrow I’ll Be Kind by Jessica Hische is the debut StoryWalk® title. We invite the whole community to participate!

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.
