The Lanpher Memorial Library has a new StoryWalk set up along and around the lower field at Hyde Park Elementary School. The story is “Going Places,” by Peter and Paul Reynolds.

The StoryWalk is dedicated by the Lanpher Library in memory of Oliver Graham Beitel, Oct. 2, 2011 to June 28, 2013, who loved to fly.

Take a walk around the field and enjoy the story, one post at a time as you go. “Going Places’ will stay up until Oct. 24, when it will be replaced with a Halloween-ish story.
