Mrs. Sue Salzsieder, District Librarian, is excited and proud to host the grand opening of the Playground StoryWalk® located at Chilton Elementary School on December 21, 2021, 8:30AM at 421 Court ST, Chilton, WI 53014.
District Librarian Sue Salzsieder and the Chilton Public Library’s Glenny Whitcomb and Rebbecca Barry collaborated to write a successful 2021 AARP Community Challenge Grant to bring permanent StoryWalk®s to the Chilton Elementary School playground and Ledge View Nature Center. Pop-up StoryWalk®s will also appear at various parks and events throughout Calumet County. This project was one of six awarded in the state of Wisconsin in 2021. https://www.aarp.org/livable-communities/community-challenge/ Our StoryWalk® project focuses on bilingual Spanish/English books in order to build diversity appreciation while encouraging a lifelong love of reading and the great outdoors.
A StoryWalk® is a fun, educational activity that displays a children’s picture book at stations along a popular walking route in the community. Typically, pages from a children’s book are installed along a path. As you stroll along the path, you are directed to the next page in the story. StoryWalk® was first developed by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT. It was conceived as a way to inspire parents, teachers, and caregivers to take children out of doors for physical activity and to learn. StoryWalk®s help build children’s interest in reading while encouraging healthy activity for both adults and children - a perfect intergenerational activity. Stories will be changed four times per year.

Our next Create And Read Evening (CARE) will take place virtually with ZOOM on November 22 at 6 PM.
District Librarian Sue Salzsieder will share a story, then create with you. There is a limited amount of materials to create with so we will limit the number of students who can attend.
We are offering CARE to one elementary grade level per month due to the generosity of the Chilton PTA and others! You will need to sign up during any other month that your child is not part of. Middle School students are welcome to join!
