Press Release, Yates Community Library

LYNDONVILLE – The Yates Community Library has found a way to reinforce and promote literacy outdoors at the scenic Veterans Memorial Park, which is right beside the library in downtown Lyndonville.

A reproduced children’s story has its pages spaced out along the park’s pathway. The story that was chosen is a great interactive sing-along and dance story. There are instructions at the beginning of the walk to show how to play the story and music on a cell phone, to enjoy as the children walk along.

This week, the first-graders at Lyndonville Central School took a mini field trip to the park to enjoy the story, and were then welcomed inside the library for seasonal stories and music with librarian, Emily Cebula.

The story walk will be on display until mid-October, and then in the spring and summer months ahead for families to enjoy. The library is grateful to the Lyndonville Department of Public Works crew for its assistance in setting up the story walk.

Emily Cebula, director of Yates Community Library, reads a story to first-graders after they saw the story walk.
