JAMES CITY COUNTY — Families looking for a kid-friendly outdoor activity might want to stop by the library.

On April 21, the Williamsburg Regional Library (WRL) recently added a new book to its StoryWalk display: “Dooby Dooby Moo” by Doreen Cronin and illustrated by Betsy Lewin (Little Simon, 2010).

StoryWalk is an nationwide program which encourages kids (and parents/guardians) to walk outdoors at their local libraries while reading a short story.

“The new StoryWalk is up and running now,”  said Barry Trott, WRL spokesperson. “We usually have them up for about a month before switching them out.”

At WRL, kids will be able to follow an outdoor path while reading “Dooby Dooby Moo“, a story about a couple of cows who enter a talent show in the hopes of winning the grand prize: A trampoline.
