StoryWalk® Hattiesburg at Hattiesburg Pocket Museum

Exercising body and mind through the joy of reading and a walk in an alley in downtown Hattiesburg will be the centerpieces of StoryWalk®, a unique concept combining physical activity and literacy. This event will be held for the fourth consecutive year at the Hattiesburg Pocket Museum. StoryWalk® transforms the pages of a book into signs laid out on a trail inviting families, children, caregivers, teachers and others to follow the path of pages. Created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, Vermont, the now internationally popular StoryWalk® Project has taken place in all 50 states and beyond. Stacy Creel, director of The University of Southern Mississippi’s School of Library and Information Science, spearheaded the move to bring StoryWalk® to Hattiesburg through the support of a community collaboration. The first 300 children arriving for the Hattiesburg StoryWalk® will be eligible to receive a free, brand-new and age-appropriate book for their reading pleasure. Although StoryWalk® is designed for younger children ages 1 - 7, older kids and adults can have fun too with other activities that will be provided as they experience the joys of reading and exercise in the uniquely creative environment the Hattiesburg Pocket Museum offers.
