Pop-up event on April 5 celebrates Storybook Walk relaunch
April 5, 2022
The Town of Ladysmith and Ladysmith Resources Centre Association are excited to announce the relaunch of the Storybook Walk at Kinsmen Park – a community-supported project promoting literacy and movement in the great outdoors.
The Storybook Walk recently celebrated its one-year anniversary since the unveiling of the first book on Family Day weekend 2021.
In celebration of this ongoing partnership and the goal of inspiring young readers, a pop-up event is being organized on Tuesday, April 5, 2022 at the park by the LRCA – Adventures in Early Literacy program and the Town, with support from Ladysmith Family and Friends (LaFF) as well as PacificCARE.
The Storybook Walk kick-off theme is ‘pen pals’ and Dear Dragon by Josh Funk was selected as the perfect book for all to read as they wander, imagine and interact with nature.
Further promoting the kick-off theme, PacificCARE is generously donating 100 letter-writing kits for the April 5 event for people to take home – but what’s a special handwritten note without someone to send it to?
Each kit will include a name of a senior in our community who might wish to receive a letter. You can lift up someone’s spirits, kindle a passion for writing and maybe even make a new friend.
The Town and LRCA are continuing to plan and organize an ongoing series of pop-up events at Kinsmen Park for the duration of the year. Each pop-up will complement the Storybook Walk theme and focus on bringing together community to promote physical literacy and reading.
The Storybook Walk is an initiative of the LRCA’s Adventures in Early Literacy program. New for 2022, books will be selected bi-monthly and installed on Tuesdays. Join the Ladysmith Storybook Walk Facebook Group to learn about upcoming books, contests, special events and more!
