Our winter 2021 StoryWalk® title is The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats. Visit the StoryWalk® to enjoy the story, as well as discussion questions and activities along the way. After reading the story, create your own snow paint! Use one part school glue and two parts shaving cream. Mix together and use a paintbrush or your fingers to paint!


​Mauston’s StoryWalk® is a series of 16 panels. Panel number one starts behind the Hatch Public Library in Riverside Park. Walkers, joggers, families, strollers, bikers, all follow the sidewalk from panel to panel, reading a page from a book, and ending with panel sixteen at Murphy Park, about a one-mile walk in all. The StoryWalk® encourages outdoor activity, literacy and the use of Mauston’s north side Riverwalk. The panels are made to be changed and our library installs a new book in the StoryWalk® seasonally.


This project was funded with help from the Friends of the Hatch Public Library, Kwik Trip Kares, and the Kohler Foundation. The StoryWalk® concept was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and was developed with the help of Rachel Senechal, Kellogg-Hubbard Library.
