Woodstock Parks and Recreation is joining the Sequoyah Regional Library System in creating TrailStory, a project aimed at giving elementary school aged children and their families a fun, active and socially safe way to read a book and enjoy Woodstock’s trails at the same time.

Throughout October, between 15 and 20 signs will be placed along the Noonday Creek Trail from the Woofstock dog park connection toward Georgia Highway 92. Pages of the book “Room on the Broom,” a national bestseller by Julia Donaldson will be on one side of the sign, with interactive/QR code questions about the book on the other side of the sign. Children and their families can enjoy the book and the trail at their own pace, anytime, as many times as they like through the entirety of October.

As a self-guided book reading, TrailStory encourages participation in outdoor activities on Woodstock’s trails without creating a gathering, which aligns with efforts to program with novel coronavirus pandemic-related social distancing in mind.

For more information on TrailStory, contact Jamey Snyder at jsnyder@woodstockga.gov or Kara Rumble at rumblek@seqlib.org.
