Community Bookwalk, and ongoing event by Atchison Public Library, 401 Kansas Ave. The library is combining reading, exercise, and family with the Community Bookwalk. Pages from the book A Hundred Billion Trillion Stars by Seth Fishman will be scattered along a route through downtown Atchison which anyone can walk between until July 14. Maps available at the west entrance of the Atchison Library will guide you through the story.
The Community BookWalk is just under a mile long, and since all of the stops are outside the entrances to the businesses of Atchison you can take the Walk at any time. The map doubles as an entry into a drawing for a telescope, to go with the Summer Reading theme A Universe of Stories. Just draw the shapes at each station on the map and submit it when you finish back at the Atchison Library. The drawing will be held on
Saturday, July 15. Special thanks goes to Bill Shipley at Farm Bureau Insurance for donating the telescope for the prize, as well as Stephen W. Wheatley, DC and Hilligoss Family Shoes for supporting the bookwalk. You can find a full list of all of the awesome local businesses that are participating in the Community BookWalk as well as more information about how to enter on our Facebook page or at atchisonlibrary.org.
