LANSING, Mich. — Capital Area District Libraries (CADL) officially opened its 11th StoryWalk® at the Laylin Park, located on East Maple Street in Mason. The featured title is Peter the Cat Five Little Ducks by James Dean.

A StoryWalk® encourages families to enjoy reading and the outdoors by posting a children's book a page or two at a time at intervals in a park, hiking trail or other outdoor site. It also includes activities like talking, reading, writing, singing and playing to help young children develop important early literacy skills.

Laylin Park is a 7.2-acre park located on the east side of Mason. The park has a unique resource of two stocked fishing ponds with fishing docks.

The Mason StoryWalk® was made possible through a generous donation from the Dart Foundation.

Other StoryWalk® locations include:

Fenner Nature Center StoryWalk® located in Lansing

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. This resource is supported in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services administered by the Library of Michigan.

Under the leadership of an appointed Board of Trustees, CADL serves most residents in Ingham County and part of Eaton County. With 13 branches and a Mobile Library, the service area includes 23 different municipalities. The system is funded through a district-wide millage.
