The MCBD has partnered with the Marshalltown Public Library for a Storybook Walk April 16-May 2 through the downtown to celebrate Día de los Niños/Día de los Libros (Children's Day/Book Day) a celebration of the importance of books and reading in the lives of all children in our community.
Twenty different book covers are posted at 20 downtown businesses allowing families and friends to discover new books as they walk downtown visiting the businesses while promoting literacy.
Participants can print off the worksheets here starting on April 16th or get printed copies from the Marshalltown Public Library (phone number 641-754-5738, ext. 3 youth desk website www.marshalltownlibrary.org) to fill in the titles of the books located at each business.
Turn in your completed Story Walk sheets to the youth desk at the public library by May 2nd for a free book, and a chance to win bigger prizes! The winner will be notified by May 6th.
