Updates regarding the storywalk.

Our book displays this month feature poetry collections, books written in verse, and the biographies of famous poets, and out on the front lawn our storywalk showcases a selection of spring-themed poems and rhymes!

It’s all in honor of National Poetry Month, a celebration of poetry’s important place in our lives and poets’ integral role in our culture. Launched by a nonprofit charitable organization called the Academy of American Poets in April 1996, it has become the largest literary celebration in the world! This year’s National Poetry Month poster features a line of poetry by a former Chancellor of the Academy of American Poets, Lucille Clifton, and artwork by children’s author and illustrator Jack Wong.

There’s a new storywalk to check out at Clark Memorial Library! In celebration of fall, we are featuring six poems about some of the best things about the season, from watching the leaves change color and drift to the ground… to jumping into a big pile of them!

A special new summer storywalk is here: make your way around the outer edge of the Library’s front lawn to find the hidden objects in six unique “I Spy” images! Good luck!

Spring has sprung, and a new storywalk is up at Clark Memorial Library. Take a stroll around the outer edge of the Library’s front lawn and read through When Spring Comes, written by Kevin Henkes and illustrated by Laura Dronzek.

We also have some exciting news: starting Friday, April 14, the Library will be increasing its hours of operation! We will now open at 12:00 PM on Fridays, and close at 5:00 PM as usual. We hope you enjoy these extended hours!

Halloween Storywalk 2022

Halloween Storywalk 2022

Our storywalk has been updated to reflect the changing of the seasons… each stand now contains an assortment of fall foliage and a section from Aaron Blabey’s Halloween picture book Pig the Monster. Stop by and read about Pig’s silly adventures, take in the fall colors that have started to appear from the sitting area, then come inside to get some more autumn reading materials!

Enjoy the summer foliage and renovated sitting area while you’re here!

Halloween Storywalk 2020

Our new library Story Walk installation is ready for viewing from October 27th through the 31st. We are offering a special humorous Halloween story, “The Hallowiener” by Dav Pilkey.

Stop by our outdoor stations on the south side of the library to enjoy a walk and reading. Begin your storywalk near the Reading Garden and then afterwards head over to the curbside table for a special Halloween treat (available during regular curbside hours).

(Special thanks to Harrison Brinton for creating the storywalk as his Eagle Scout project).
