Storywalk at Scanlon Creek (ends Sunday)

_

 

In partnership, the BWG Library and Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority are bringing its second Storywalk to Scanlon Creek.  

 

Join us for a storytime walk in nature. Follow along the pages of a story as you take a self-guided walk along the trails. The story will begin at the Head of trails and continue along a portion of the beautiful Sugar Maple Trail.  The storywalk will begin on Saturday, October 3 and will remain along the trail until Sunday, October 25. Parking is complementary at this time.

The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. StoryWalk® is a registered service mark owned by Ms. Ferguson.

Celebrate your local library during Ontario Public Library Week

_

 

The BWG Library is launching a new Reading Challenge, just in time for Ontario Public Library Week, October 18 to 24!  Fall into Reading is a six-week challenge designed to help you enjoy the autumn, relax and read.

 

We are challenging all community members to read for thirty-minutes a day for six-weeks. The rewards? A free book and better health! Research has shown that reading is better at reducing stress than listening to music, sipping tea or taking a walk. In fact, stress levels were shown to be reduced by 68% after reading. Only six-minutes of reading can slow down your heart rate and improve overall health!

 

To participate, sign up for Beanstack, by visiting bwglibrary.beanstack.com.  Track your reading through Beanstack on your desktop or the free app for mobile devices. Once on Beanstack, select the Fall Into Reading Challenge and log your reading – track any ready including books, magazines, comics or even audiobooks. Complete the challenge and win by logging 22 hours by November 30.

 

For extra badges, you can try any of the additional activities. Looking for things to do in the Library?  Help us decorate our reading tree in the library and track how many hours our community reads this fall!

 

We hope to that you will join our Fall into Reading Challenge and stay tuned for more Beanstack challenges over the coming year!
