The Waterville StoryWalk now has two locations. Each of them features a book by a Maine author.

The Rotary Clubs of Waterville Noon and Waterville Sunrise, and the Waterville Public Library have announced the newest Waterville StoryWalk location at Reed Field. Located at 58 Drummond Ave., the wooded area features “Rhoda’s Rescue,” written by Barbara Walsh and illustrated by Abby Grieg.

Reed Field is located on the corner of Armory Road and Drummond Avenue, adjacent to Waterville’s George J. Mitchell School and Educare campus, according to a news release from Tammy Rabideau, library director.

An official Mid-Maine Chamber of Commerce ribbon cutting for the new Waterville StoryWalk at Reed Field is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. Friday, May 5.

A second Waterville StoryWalk, located on the North Street Community Connector Trail, hosts “Imagine a Wolf” by Lucky Platt. This StoryWalk starts at the trailhead across the street from Quarry Road.

As part of Arts in Bloom at 10 a.m. Saturday, May 6, people can stop by the trail, meet the author, and take a guided walk with StoryWalk partners.


StoryWalk promotes reading, movement, relationships, outside time, and exploration.

A StoryWalk offers laminated pages of children’s books along a walking trail. As people stroll down the trail, they discover the unfolding of a story with engaging prompts. New stories will keep coming along.

While supplies last, copies of current StoryWalk books are available for pick-up for free at the Waterville Public Library, 73 Elm St.

The new StoryWalk at Reed Field has been made possible by Waterville Sunrise and Noon Rotary Club grants.
