Barnegat Library Offers a Walk and Read for Children and Adults

The Ocean County Library will offer four “StoryWalk® on Burr Street” programs for children to read and walk from the Barnegat Branch, 112 Burr St. to the Robert L. Horbelt Elementary School, 104 Burr St.

Families can begin at either the library or school and walk along an adjoining sidewalk to read Ezra Jack Keats’ book “Over in the Meadow.” Laminated pages from this children’s book will be displayed along an outdoor path. As participants stroll down the trail, they will be directed to the next page of the story.
Children and their parents can enjoy the walks on the following dates:
Tuesday, 1:30 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. June 27
Wednesday, 1:30 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. July 12
Tuesday, 10:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. July 25
Tuesday, 10:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. August 8

StoryWalk® takes place in almost 1,000 cities, 49 states and in several countries as an innovative and delightful way for children and adults to simultaneously enjoy reading and the outdoors.
