This year you will be able to enjoy the library’s StoryWalkⓇ at two locations, Hoopes Park, 100 S. Herman Ave, and Seymour Library, 176 Genesee Street! 

Opening in July, with new books installed through August.

Missed the StoryWalkⓇ at Hoopes Park?! We will be resharing all of your favorite StoryWalkⓇ books at Seymour Library this fall. Take a stroll through the library’s gardens and read a story at the same time.

We will announce when new books are up on the library’s Facebook page. Don’t forget to share your StoryWalkⓇ selfies to seymourlibrary at or in the comments below! We will reshare on the library’s Facebook and Instagram.

Seymour Library is grateful to the generous donors who make our summer reading program possible. Major funding for the summer reading program comes from the Bernard Carl and Shirley Rosen Library Fund of the Community Foundation of Tompkins County and the Friends of Seymour Library.
