StoryWalk is a great family activity!
Opening Ceremony is Friday, July 1st at 10:00 a.m.
Join StoryWalk at its new location!
StoryWalkTM opens rain or shine, with family activities and refreshments on July 1 from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. Find StoryWalkTM surrounding the Holderness Town Gazebo located behind the Holderness Post Office at Curry Place.
This walk features "Around the Pond: Who's been There" by Lindsay Barrett George.

In this tale, two youngsters set out to pick blueberries for pie, but are soon distracted by telltale signs they see and items they find along an old deer path around a pond. With each discovery, they ask, "Who's been here?" The next stop on the StoryWalkTM provides the answer! Get outside and enjoy this free fun family activity, presented in partnership with the Holderness Library and Holderness Recreation Department.
