Bargersville StoryWalk

This StoryWalk is located at Windisch Park in Bargersville.

Enjoy The Scariest Book Ever by Bob Shea as you and your family stroll along the trail.

Description: This is the scariest book ever! Or so claims its melodramatic ghost narrator. You can go ahead and turn the page, but don't expect him to come with you. He is a big scaredy-cat!

Special thanks to our partner: Town of Bargersville.

Country Gate Park StoryWalk

This StoryWalk is located at Country Gate Park in New Whiteland.

Come read Those Darn Squirrels Fly South by Adam Rubin while you take a stroll with your family.

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.

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 The Dark by Lemony Snicket while you walk.

Description: Laszlo is afraid of the dark which lives in the same big, creaky house as him, until one night the dark pays him a visit.

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.
