StoryWalk® Project A significant initiative is the StoryWalk® Project, which involves the installation of a series of permanent panels that display a story at the Hamilton Reservoir in Palatine. The Foundation is thrilled to partner with other local businesses and organizations to provide a place where families can enjoy reading while participating in an outdoor activity together.

In the Summer of 2021, a new book, Señorita Mariposa by Ben Gundersheimer, was the fourth story installed since the project started in 2018.

Made possible by a partnership with Palatine Library Foundation, Palatine Library District, Palatine Park District, and many generous donors.

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.
