Welcome to WML’s StoryWalk® at Rotary Park funded by the Friends of the Wilmington Memorial Library 2021 Annual Appeal.

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. StoryWalks® are now installed in all 50 states, supporting literacy, health and fitness.

As you walk along the path, each numbered sign contains the page from a book. Enjoy reading and following the story, beginning at the playground, circling the pond, and ending on the opposite side of the field. Please feel free to take photos and share your experience on by tagging us on social media or email your photos to us at kids@wilmlibrary.org.

We hope you enjoy the stories posted at the StoryWalk® at Rotary Park. Library staff will be changing out the book every so often so please come back soon for another walk around the park! 

Our new book – The Leaf Thief written by Alice Hemming and illustrated by Nicola Slater – is a fun and quirky story about the changing seasons and what happens to the leaves when winter comes around.


Squirrel loves counting the leaves on his tree–red leaves, gold leaves, orange, and more. But hold on! One of his leaves is missing! On a quest to find the missing leaf, Squirrel teams up with his good friend Bird to discover who the leaf thief could be among their forest friends.
