If you’re wondering why various businesses have storybook pages in their windows, it’s because they’re taking part in the Rotary Club of Slave Lake Public Library’s summer programming.
“Our community story walk is a fun activity for families, individuals, dog walkers – anyone who is interested in getting out in the fresh air to have an adventure in our community!” says program co-ordinator Lindsay Rosentreter. “It will get you outdoors, get you physically active, help you see local businesses and establishments you might not be aware of, and have fun with reading along the way. We have a preplanned route set out for you with stops along the way where you will read the pages of an ongoing storybook. Each stop will feature one or two pages of the book.”
Rosentreter says that the summer story is called ABC of Canada by Per-Henrik Gurth and Kim Bellefontaine.
“You will need to complete the entire route to find out what happens at the end of the story,” she says. “You will receive a map to follow at the start of the route, which is the Rotary Club of Slave Lake Public Library. You can pick up your community story walk map at the library anytime on Monday to Thursday from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. or Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. or Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and do your walk on your own leisure time.”
Rosentreter adds, “The story pages will remain up in the front window of the businesses and establishments that are partnering with us from July 1st to August 18th, 2017. Check your map and follow it along to bring you to the next exciting page(s) of the storybook then come back in to the public library where you can fill out a comment card for a chance to win an prize.”
These pages can be found in Random Thoughtz’ windows.
