Story Stroll in the Park
Bring the family to Cook Park and take a stroll while reading a great book along the walking path that loops around the park. A story stroll is a delightful way for children and adults to enjoy reading and the outdoors. Follow the signs and go page by page from the children’s book along the path. This is a free family friendly event. Visit us between September 7-14. A drop-in craft will be available on Saturday, September 11 from 1:00-2:30 pm.
This program is co-hosted with the Wauconda Area Library.
