FORT RUCKER, Ala. (WTVY) - After having to stop their in-house programs due to COVID-19, Fort Rucker Center Library decided to put up a temporary story walk outside the building.

The response was so great it’s led to a permanent one.

“We were able to get the funding for that and install permanent posts and we’ve just installed and it is already taking off,” said Cameron Hill – Reference Librarian at Center Library.

The story walk follows along Beaver Lake Trail.

Each page of the book is laminated and posted for 4 to 6 weeks.

The kids and family are loving it.

“I thought it was very cool I thought the pictures were very interesting on there I really loved the illustrations,” said Jack Hinshaw.

Now library staff have a new plan in mind to make the story walk even better than it already is.

“We’d like to incorporate some other maybe some activities as well depending on the book,” said Hill.

kKds enjoying the experience have shared ideas they hope will be used to grow the project.

“I feel like in the future it is going to be way cooler they are going to make it better where we can actually go on jogs and read it faster somehow,” said Kinshaw.

This months book along the trail is ”Ada Twist, Scientist”.
