StoryWalk_Extended

The wonderful partnership project of the New Rochelle Downtown Business Improvement District New Rochelle Public Library and the City of New Rochelle will now continue for another two weeks-- until Monday January 18, 2021-- so that more families can enjoy the special STORYWALK® ® through the Downtown.  

STORYWALK® * is FREE and able to be done outside at one’s own pace and with masks on.

"This will be a challenging winter for all of us, and so it's even more important than usual to have fun, COVID-safe outdoor activities that allow families to stay healthy, fit, and connected to our community," said Mayor Noam Bramson.  "I applaud the NRBID for its initiative, and invite residents to experience and enjoy our Downtown in a new, creative way.”

Children along with their friends, families and caregivers may begin at the New Rochelle Public Library’s Lawton Street Drop off/Pick up Entrance windows. There, they will see the first pages of the book and may get the map that features where the next pages of The Snowy Day are posted. 

“New Rochelle Public Library is thrilled to be working with the New Rochelle Downtown BID and sharing the beloved story The Snowy Day by Jack Ezra Keats with families through the city's first ever STORYWALK® , said Robert Simic, Head of Children's Services, New Rochelle Public Library.

Each of the 14 participating Main Street business has their part of the story displayed in both English and Spanish in their window. The STORYWALK®  Map will also be available at www.nrpl.org and www.newrochelledowntown.com.

“Our New Rochelle Downtown Merchants are very pleased to extend this fun event for our Community. Everyone can take a walk and then shop and enjoy a bite to eat—still indoors at this time,” said Karel Littman, Executive Director, New Rochelle Downtown Business Improvement District (NRBID).

*STORYWALK®  is a national program created by the Anne Ferguson of Montpelier Vermont and developed in conjunction with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library.
