The Beekley Library and the New Hartford Recreation Department have brought a holiday StoryWalk to downtown New Hartford.
A StoryWalk is a self-guided strolling and reading experience. Pages of a book are mounted on posters and displayed in order for participants to follow along as they read them.
The walk starts at Town Hall and moves on through the center of town.
This story will remain on display until Thanksgiving when another one will be hung to continue to celebrate the season.
Best wishes for the holidays from the library, the recreation, and the downtown businesses.

“So serenely beautiful and written in a prose so gravely measured and thoughtful, that one feels touched with grace just to read it.” ―Michael Dirda, The Washington Post.
“There are passages here of such profound, hard-won wisdom and spiritual insight that they make your own life seem richer. . . Gilead [is] a quiet, deep celebration of life that you must not miss.” ―Ron Charles, The Christian Science Monitor.
