2021-12-21 Playground StoryWalk® Grand Opening

Information
First published on 13 December 2021 Posted in Library

Mrs. Sue Salzsieder, District Librarian, is excited and proud to host the grand opening of the Playground StoryWalk® located at Chilton Elementary School on December 21, 2021, 8:30AM at 421 Court ST, Chilton, WI 53014.

District Librarian Sue Salzsieder and the Chilton Public Library’s Glenny Whitcomb and Rebbecca Barry collaborated to write a successful 2021 AARP Community Challenge Grant to bring permanent StoryWalk®s to the Chilton Elementary School playground and Ledge View Nature Center. Pop-up StoryWalk®s will also appear at various parks and events throughout Calumet County. This project was one of six awarded in the state of Wisconsin in 2021. https://www.aarp.org/livable-communities/community-challenge/ Our StoryWalk® project focuses on bilingual Spanish/English books in order to build diversity appreciation while encouraging a lifelong love of reading and the great outdoors.

A StoryWalk® is a fun, educational activity that displays a children’s picture book at stations along a popular walking route in the community. Typically, pages from a children’s book are installed along a path. As you stroll along the path, you are directed to the next page in the story. StoryWalk® was first developed by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT. It was conceived as a way to inspire parents, teachers, and caregivers to take children out of doors for physical activity and to learn. StoryWalk®s help build children’s interest in reading while encouraging healthy activity for both adults and children - a perfect intergenerational activity. Stories will be changed four times per year.

April 28 - May 3, 2019 Screen-Free Week

Information
First published on 10 April 2019 Posted in Library

Screen-Free Week is an annual invitation to play, explore, and rediscover the joys of life beyond ad-supported screens. From April 28 to May 3, 2019, thousands of families, schools, and communities around the world will put down their entertainment screens for seven days of fun, connection, and discovery. Even though it’s about turning off screens, Screen-Free Week isn’t about going without – it’s about what you can get! An hour once dedicated to YouTube becomes an hour spent outside; ten minutes wiled away on social media turn into ten minutes spent doodling; a movie on a rainy afternoon is replaced by time spent reading, chatting, or playing pretend!  We celebrate Screen-Free Week by putting down our entertainment screens and do literally anything else! You might be surprised at what you find.  More information may be found at https://commercialfreechildhood.org/
