Sherburne County is partnering with the Great River Regional Library and the Elk River Parks Department to bring four Story Strolls to area parks.

Each participating park will have a deconstructed children’s book along a trail. The pages of the book will be placed in a stand and lined in page order, so visitors can read while they stroll.

The Story Strolls are part of the library’s summer reading program for the Becker, Big Lake and Elk River library branches. Each participant in the summer reading program will receive a bookmark that can be stamped at each Story Stroll. Those who collect a stamp from each stroll on their bookmark will be eligible for a prize. Redeem your prize by showing your completed bookmark at the Big Lake, Becker, or Elk River libraries.

The four children’s books chosen for the Story Stroll incorporate the summer reading program theme of Reading Colors Your World.

The Story Stroll program will kick off June 7 and run through Aug. 8. The stories will rotate every two weeks. Here’s the schedule, by park.
