While you are planning your ARPA spending, don't forget StoryWalks- a  
safe and fun way to get families outdoors and reading.  Bowdoinham has  
managed to display 8 different Story Walks over the past few years-  
even featuring a winter story along a snowy trail during our Ice &  
Smelt Festival! We have partnered with a local landtrust to promote a  
new trail in town. We love the quality of the laminated stories from  
Islandport Press in Yarmouth.  We used simple wooden stakes that have  
industrial strngth clips screwed to them. The stakes are reusable and  
so are the Story Walk pages, so we share with local elementary schools  
in the area when we are done. I asked Islandport to share the details  
with you all and here is what they sent me.

"Islandport Press offers select titles as story walks! Perfect for  
Covid safe storytimes, each story walk is made up of 16 spreads ready  
to be mounted onto posts, display cases or walls. Story walks are  
available unlimited, or laminated with a thick laminate for  
durability. Unlaminated story walks are $65.00 plus shipping,  
laminated story walks are $150.00 plus shipping. Each story walk is  
printed on demand and the turnaround time is currently about 7 days.  
Islandport Press can provide quotes, accept purchase orders and issue  
invoices. For more information visit or  
email or call Shannon Butler at [log in to unmask],
