Country Gate Park Storywalk Winter


Country Gate Park StoryWalk

Our newest StoryWalk is located at Country Gate Park in New Whiteland.

Come read No Yeti Yet by Mary Ann Fraser while you take a stroll with your family.

Description: It’s a snowy, blowy, wintry day – just perfect for a yeti hunt…or so thinks big brother. Younger brother is not as convinced. Look for the yeti hiding in the pictures as you follow along with the boys on their quest!

Special thanks to our partners: Town of New Whiteland, 84 Lumber, and Life Scout Sean Donaldson, who constructed the StoryWalk signs and Little Free Library with the help of fellow scouts from Troop 245 Greenwood, as his Eagle Scout Service Project.

Trafalgar Storywalk: Penguin in Love

Kelsey Anne Devine StoryWalk

This StoryWalk is located at the Trafalgar Branch of Johnson County Public Library. Stroll along our beautiful prairie walk while you enjoy the story with your family.

Come read Penguin in Love by Salina Yoon while you walk.

Description: When Penguin finds a lost mitten on the ice one day, he wonders who it belongs to – after all, every mitten has a mate! 

Free-spirited Kelsey grew up in Trafalgar and graduated from Indian Creek High School. Kelsey cherished her family, friends and her dog Marley with all her heart. She loved spending time in the sunshine and taking photos, especially with Marley. Kelsey dreamed of one day living in Florida, near the ocean. This StoryWalk was created in memory of Kelsey, and in celebration of her love for this community.

Franklin StoryWalk

Johnson County's first StoryWalk is located in Franklin's Urban Forest, just a few blocks from the Franklin Branch.

Come read Here Comes Jack Frost by Kazuno Kohara while you walk.

Description: One cold morning, a lonely boy wishes for something to do. His animal friends are hibernating and he has nobody to play with – even the birds have flown south! When he meets Jack Frost, the last thing he expects is to make a new friend…or to discover how enchanting winter can be!
