Step into a book at The Arboretum! Each month, the children's librarians of Lexington Public Library have hand-selected a tale to share on a StoryWalk! Follow the path from the Visitor Center, through the Home Demonstration Garden and end at the Kentucky Children's Garden. Visit each panel, revealing a new page and an invitation to interact with the tale. 

Free and open during Arboretum hours!

The StoryWalk Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Vermont Bicycle &Pedestrian Coalition (VBPC) and the Kellog Hubbard Library. There are StoryWalks in across the nation but only two in Lexington, Ky. After visiting the Storywalk at The Arboretum head over to the Lexington Living Arts and Science Center and read another story!
