There’s an exciting family event going on in downtown Perry during Fall Break! Bring the family and enjoy the Fall StoryWalk® and Scarecrow Fest! This is a great way for children and adults to enjoy reading and the outdoors together. We would love for our school to have the most participants, so come on out!!!

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