What are Story Trails of North Carolina?

The Story Trails of North Carolina highlights StoryWalk®/Book Trail/Book Walk programs across the state. These programs are a wonderful family-friendly activity that promotes early literacy development and outdoor adventures. 

Using pages from a deconstructed children's book, a story is displayed along trails or walking paths on poster boards, attached to fences, or encased in outdoor frames. Pages are often accompanied by activity prompts and questions. 

The Story Trails of North Carolina only includes programs that are active and ongoing. Although we wish to include them all, temporary or pop-up programs are difficult to maintain over time.

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.
