STORY WALK AT THE PARK!

The Elmwood Public Library has installed a Story Walk at the park!  Not familiar with this?  It’s a children’s book fastened onto yard signs and spread out over a large outdoor area.  Families and friends walk the course and read the book together. The book chosen for this walk is, “The Gruffalo.”  It follows the story of a little mouse who encounters several not-so-scary creatures during his adventure through the forest.

“I’ve heard of these projects before and thought it would be a great way to combine outdoor fun and literacy in a safe and socially distant manner,” said Library Director Anne Pope. “My hope is to leave it up through the Holiday Extravaganza on November 27. After that, maybe we can do a different book in the spring at a different location!”

 NEWSLETTER SUBMISSIONS

Did you know that the initial concept of this online town newsletter more than 15 years ago was supposed to be based around READER SUBMISSIONS!
Yup, that's right. Back then it was harder to send in news. NOW, you can just email news and photos to editor@elmwoodnebraska.com It's that simple. 
 
Remember not everyone has Facebook. Really they don't.
