Kids and adults are invited to the Garfield Library on Monday, August 15 at 12…
Back by popular demand, the Garfield Library is partnering with the Whitman County Parks Department to offer a fun and educational way to enjoy the outdoors and build children’s interest in reading. In October, families are invited to enjoy “Spooky Trail Tales: Take a Walk; Enjoy a Story; Get a Fright” at the Elberton Hiking Trail.
Spooky Trail Tales combines three critical elements for overall family health: early literacy learning, family engagement, and physical activity. Selected stories from “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark” by Alvin Schwartz are posted along the Elberton Hiking Trail for families to read and discuss while they walk.
To get to the Elberton Hiking Trail from Garfield, take 3rd St (between Grumpy’ s Tavern & the Meet Shop Too), turn right onto Jefferson St, continue onto Elberton Rd for 4.8 miles, then turn left onto Draper Rd. Parking is in front of the old school house and the trail head is clearly marked across the street. Participants are encouraged to sign the guest book located at the trail head before starting off.
For additional information, contact Garfield Librarian Sarah Anderson at (509) 635-1490 or follow the Garfield Library on Facebook. Garfield Library is open Mondays from 1-6pm and Wednesdays from 10am-2:30pm.
