StoryWalk® 2020

November 26 – December 16, 2020


Seward Memorial Library invites everyone to participate in a holiday StoryWalk®. Beginning on Saturday, November 28 entry forms will be available at the library for those who plan to travel around the Seward Courthouse Square.
Click here to print the entry form at home.

Start at Seward Memorial Library and visit the front window of many businesses to read the story pages as well as gather words making a holiday message. Participants will return their form to the library for a random prize drawing.


For those who prefer to stay warm, the library will host an additional StoryWalk® inside the library. Gather the holiday message by finding the book pages at various points around the main level of the library. Participants can double their fun and enjoy two different books. Turn in both holiday messages for twice the chances of winning. The holiday StoryWalk® ends on December 13.

Drawings for both prizes will take place on December 14 and the winners will be notified.

The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. Storywalk® is a registered service mark owned by Ms. Ferguson.
