Enjoy all the fun of storytime from the comfort of your home! Each themed Storytime Kit contains a fun story to read, a song to sing, a craft to make, and resources to explore.
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.
1000 Books Before Kindergarten
The concept is simple, the rewards are priceless. Read a book (any book) to your newborn, infant, and/or toddler. The goal is to have read 1,000 books before your child starts kindergarten. Sound hard? It’s easier than you think.
If you read just one book a night, you will have read about 365 books in a year. That is 730 books in two years and 1,095 books in three years! And we have fun incentives to keep you and your child motivated.
