New StoryWalk: The Hallo-Wiener

Get your family outside to stretch their legs and read a book at the same time with StoryWalk®.

StoryWalk® is an innovative and delightful way for children - and adults - to enjoy reading and the outdoors at the same time. A StoryWalk® is a book that has been taken apart and presented page by page on a trail, bike path, or in store windows to promote reading and exercise. StoryWalk® was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, Vermont, and developed in collaboration with the Vermont Bicycle & Pedestrian Coalition and the Kellogg Hubbard Library.

Miss Jill and the Upper Sandusky Community Library initially brought the concept to the community in July and have presented a new StoryWalk® each month. For October, Miss Jill has selected a fun book for the Halloween season. The Hallo-Wiener by Dav Pilkey is about Oscar, a little dog with a big bullying problem. “Oscar is a little dog with a big problem -- he gets more tricks than treats because other dogs tease him all the time. But one brave act on Halloween makes Oscar a Grade-A hero, proving that a little wiener can be a real winner!”

The StoryWalk® begins at the library and continues in the windows of the following businesses: A Cut Above, Corner Inn, SURGE, Neumeister’s Candy Shoppe, Fay Family Dental Care, A.J.’s Heavenly Pizza, Johnson Orthodontics, The Barber Shop, Community First Bank, First Citizens National Bank, Upper Fire Systems, Richardson Flower, Woods’ Antiques ‘N More, and Koehler Drug.
