For the entire month of October, we have set up a book trail at the West Virginia Botanic Gardens. The book, “At the Old Haunted House” by Kelen Ketteman, will be displayed on pop-up boards along a trail so that you can move, enjoy the outdoors, and follow along a story. You can find the book trail near the labyrinth area at the gardens.
Download or pick up your “I Spy” handout at any branch location. With your handout, find all the artwork installations on the Caperton Rail-Trail, Deckers Creek Rail-Trail, and neighboring/trailside parks.
Fill out your handouts and take it to a library branch location by November 5th where 3 winners will be drawn to win $25 gift cards to a business along the rail trail.
