Welcome to StoryWalk®at Fairbury City Park
A Storywalk® combines physical activity with books to help build children’s interest in reading while encouraging healthy activity for all! It begins on the southeast side of the Frontier Fun Park near the gravel parking lot. From there, follow the story by walking around the circle!
When Sam the library mouse and his friend Sarah wake to find the library being packed up to prepare for a major renovation, they realize they won’t have a home during the construction. So off they go in search of a new place to live. Sam knows research is key, so he finds books about architectural styles to get ideas for building a temporary home from objects found around the library. They build and live in a variety of houses: a castle, an igloo, a yurt, a modern house, and even a geodesic dome. But none feels like home to Sam. Finally, though, the renovation of the library is complete, and they can move back to their true home, the library!
The book includes photos of the real house styles discussed in the text and a relevant glossary of architectural terms.
At home, in your car, anywhere you go, you can learn a new language! All you need is your library card! Get more information on our website: fairburylibrary.org, or, stop by the library and staff will help you get started today learning a foreign language!
