As part of the Dirty Kanza festivities, the Emporia Public Library and Emporia State University’s William Allen White Library have teamed up for a bike-themed "StoryWalk" with the support of local businesses.
Beginning today and ending Friday, June 8, families are encouraged to walk or bike the storyboards arranged from the east side of Commercial Street at Sixth Avenue north to 12th Avenue and then back down on the west side of the street.
The featured story is "Duck on a Bike" by David Shannon and storyboards are numbered to help readers keep track. This is a family event combining exercise and early literacy. The StoryWalk Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, Vermont and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg Hubbard Library.
