Lincoln Memorial Hospital Community Health, U of I Extension to Host Storybook Walk


“The goal is to remind everyone how important daily physical activity is for maintaining health,” said Kayla Swaar, Extension SNAP-Ed educator. “The storybook walks will lead children and families around a path as they read one page at a time and will feature the popular children’s book, ‘Giraffes Can’t Dance.’”

Both storybook walks are free and open to the public. Participants can also make a drum craft and take home a free activity. Registration is not required. For more information, call 217-605-5014 or email
