ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - Roanoke Public Libraries haS partnered with Roanoke Parks and Recreation to put up a traveling story walk.

Roanoke libraries have published a Roanoke baby bilingual book. For the month of March, each page of this book, with words in English and Spanish, will be displayed at the libraries. The pages were along the sidewalk of the Raleigh Court library Friday. The pop-up story walk will then move around the five other Roanoke libraries. The story walk will also be at three Parks and Rec locations, including at Belmont Park Saturday.

“We really believe that by making an experience around literacy and around reading together, especially as a family, is so important, and then the parks brought the whole let’s-get-out-and-get-active-as-a-family part to it,” Amber Lowery, Manager of Youth Services for Roanoke City Public Libraries, said.

The pop-up story will will also be taken to local elementary schools.
