The Haverhill Public Library is bringing stories out into the community with our Trail Tales!
Now that the weather is warmer, you can find our Trail Tales posted on the riverfront boardwalk overlooking the Merrimack River. Take time on a sunny day to walk along the boardwalk and read the posted pages of a beautiful storybook.
The story begins behind the new Haverhill Heights building. Please see the map below to guide you. You may access the boardwalk from the steps near the Post Office (pink) or the sidewalk near Haverhill Bank (purple). The approximate coordinates are 42.773606962509234, -71.0803020271421.
Scan the QR code at the end of the trail to be entered into a raffle for a copy of the book. We will be putting up new stories every few weeks. Visit our Facebook page for updates on when we post a new Trail Tale. Happy reading!
The Trail Tale is an adaptation of the StoryWalk® Project. 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.
