Introducing the Story Walk at Phillis Wheatley Community Library!
The Healthi Kids Coalition has partnered with the Rochester Public Library and the City of Rochester to create an interactive Story Walk outside the walls of Phillis Wheatley Community Library. The project, funded by KaBoom's Play Everywhere Challenge, a national competition that awards innovative ideas to make play easy, available, and fun for kids and families, and the Corn Hill Neighbors Association.
The story walk embraces local history and diversity and activates the space in front of Phillis Wheatley Library. The project will provide kids and families in the neighborhood with a unique opportunity to play, promote community building, public beautification, and celebrate neighborhood history. Working with author Lisa Johnson from Writers and Books, and artist Shawn Dunwoody, children participated in a library program over the last few weeks to write the first story and create the design for the project. The story walk is the product of their vision and design
