Installed in summer 2020, the Storywalk® at Fort Liberty Playland is located at 6845 Van Gorden Road, Liberty Township, Ohio, and was constructed as a partnership between MidPointe Library System and Liberty Township. The project was funded in part through a federal Institute of Museum and Library Services LSTA grant awarded by the State Library of Ohio.
The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. Storywalk® is a registered service mark owned by Ms. Ferguson.
