The Maynard Public Library StoryWalk® is made possible by the Friends of the Maynard Public Library!

Thank you to the Randall Library in Stow, MA for lending us

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.
