The recent successful installation of a Storywalk® at the Victor Municipal Park by the Victor Farmington Library, Farmington Victor Kiwanis Club, Victor Parks and Recreation, and Victor Hiking Trails has led to further collaboration and cooperation between Victor Farmington Library Community Services Librarian Greta Selin-Love and the Kiwanis Club: another Storywalk is to be installed in Farmington in the spring of this year. The library made the Farmington Storywalk® the focus of their ROC the Day Fundraiser in December, and community members supported the effort with generous donations. In January, Dave Plante, Kiwanis Club Member, delivered a $1,000 grant from the club to the library, bringing the project’s fundraising to a successful conclusion.
Town of Farmington Highway/Parks Superintendent Don Giroux, and Town Supervisor Peter Ingalsbe helped identifythe perfect location for the new Storywalk®, which will surround the existing playground at Farmington’s Town Park on County Road 8. This addition will encourage literacy, physical activity, and families to spend time together in the great outdoors. Watch for news about the Grand Opening of the Farmington Storywalk® this spring. Anne Ferguson of Montpellier, VT is credited with developing the Storywalk Project and in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library.
