Hiking

The Great Kansas State Park Tour

What’s the matter with Kansas? Absolutely nothing!

Mary Gage and Monicka Remboldt spent a year exploring all 26 of the state parks in Kansas. On TUE, September 26 from 7-8:30 PM in the Auditorium, they’ll be here to give us a virtual tour of their adventures.

Spend an evening reveling in the natural beauty of the Sunflower State, but beware, you might be inspired to dust off your hiking boots and discover those wild places for yourself!

StoryWalk® Along DeVictor Park Trail

Get your hiking shoes ready! From June 5–July 28 you can take a hike on the trails at DeVictor Park and read the book Super Happy Magic Forest by Matty Long. Visit our Children’s Desk for more info.

The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration the Kellogg Hubbard Library. Storywalk®is a registered service mark owned by Ms. Ferguson.

BONUS: The Storywalk® is also part of the library’s Game of Gnomes fitness adventure this summer—so, look for a gnome to mark off your list, too. Stop by the Welcome Desk, grab a gnome map, and start playing!

Kansas Trail Guide

On Monday, July 18 from 7-8:30 PM in our Auditorium, siblings Jonathan and Kristin Conard will talk about their book, Kansas Trail Guide, which outlines where to go, what to do, where to eat, where to sleep, and what to bring with you as you get out and explore Kansas.
