Pick a Pumpkin book cover
October's Story Stroll title captures all the excitement of a favorite holiday tradition

Enjoy a Story Stroll in downtown Worthington!

Throughout the month of October, a number of downtown businesses will have individual pages of the picture book, Pick a Pumpkin, hanging in their High Street- (or close to High Street-) facing windows or doors. The Story Stroll starts at Old Worthington Library. Begin there and pick up a map at the accounts desk or in the children's area (or download and print the map below), then gather your family and walk from business to business reading the pages and completing the early literacy prompts that accompany the story.

With vibrant art and read-aloud text filled with the spirit of community and the thrills of the season, Patricia Toht's Pick a Pumpkin is a celebration of every fun-filled step in creating the perfect jack-o'-lantern on Halloween night.
