Books in the Park StoryWalk®
Have you ever had to choose between reading a book and going for a walk?
Then we have some good news for you: thanks to RDPL’s Books in the Park StoryWalk®, you don’t have to! Come down to the Dawe Branch on Tuesday afternoons and the Timberlands Branch on Thursday afternoons throughout the summer to read our weekly Book in the Park. We'll also be popping up at City Parks throughout Red Deer on Wednesdays from 2 p.m. - 4 p.m. as part of the City of Red Deer's Neighbourhood Park Program, opens a new window!
We promise that it’ll be a great way to get everyone in your family moving, learning, and enjoying the outdoors together. And as an added bonus, every time you visit, you can enter into our monthly StoryWalk® prize draw!
