“Hidden Heroes” Noyes StoryWalk®

June 19 - July 3

The Foundation’s sixth StoryWalk®, featuring Hidden Heroes, will run from Saturday, June 19 to Saturday, July 3 at Warner Circle Park.

Families are invited to read 10 Hidden Heroes by Mark Shriver on posted signs as they stroll through a park in Kensington. The Noyes 10 Hidden Heroes StoryWalk®, is presented by the Noyes Children’s Library Foundation in collaboration with Montgomery Parks.
In this fun-filled and inspiring seek-and-find book, New York Times bestselling author and president of Save the Children Action Network Mark K. Shriver highlights the various ways children and adults can be real-life heroes in their everyday lives. Children learn to count the individual heroes who shine a light on the importance of helping others, whether it’s through teaching, caring for animals, protecting the environment, or keeping others from harm.
This sixth StoryWalk® presented by the Noyes Children’s Library Foundation will celebrate heroes throughout America during the Fourth of July holiday, and will also celebrate the re-opening of Noyes Children’s Library on July 6!
A free craft kit related to 10 Hidden Heroes will be available for pick up in a box outside the Noyes Library for Young Children (10237 Carroll Place, Kensington, MD 20895) on Saturdays and Sundays (9am to 4pm) for the duration of the StoryWalk® (except in inclement weather).
