The Children’s Department at the Concord Free Public Library has installed a March StoryWalk on the Main Library front lawn. This month the StoryWalk features A Sled for Gabo, a Spanish-infused picture book by Emma Otheguy with vibrant illustrations by Ana Ramirez Gonzalez. This is an uplifting tale about shy Gabo, who tries to make new friends after it snows in his neighborhood. The StoryWalk is displayed along the brick walkway outside the Main Street entrance.
Additionally, for National Poetry Month in April, the front lawn’s StoryWalk will become a Poetry Walk, and we are inviting patrons to share their poetry with us. Submitted poems may be featured in the Poetry Walk on the Main Library lawn, and both the Library and Gaining Ground welcome visitors to the Gaining Ground farm in Concord to read more poems written by the community as they walk through a peaceful natural setting.
StoryWalks are a wonderful way to build children’s interest in reading, promote physical activity, and enjoy time together outside.
