New StoryWalk Unveiled at Exton Park

StoryWalk Unveiling

Congressman Ryan Costello, the Chester County Commissioners, representatives from the Chester County Library Trust, and library supporters attended a ceremony as the Chester County Library unveiled a new StoryWalk® at Exton Park during National Trails Day in early June. The StoryWalk® is installed along a ½ mile paved walkway surrounding two playgrounds and a picnic area. The project consists of 20 reading stations, each featuring a page in a children’s storybook, which promotes health and literacy in young children by encouraging exercise and reading. The book currently featured is “On Meadowview Street” by Henry Cole. The Library plans to change the book a few times each year.


The funding for this project was made possible by the Chester County Library Trust. The displays were installed by Voya Financial employees on their volunteer in-service day in May, in cooperation with the Chester County Library and the County’s Facilities & Parks Departments.


The StoryWalk® is located in Exton Park, 132 Church Farm Lane, Exton, PA.
