Pull on your boots (or perhaps your snowshoes!) to enjoy the winter StoryWalk® on the Haystack Mountain Trail. This enjoyable family activity offers time outdoors in nature, physical exercise, and introduces you to a new book. In Fox versus Winter by Corey R. Tabor, Fox does not like winter. None of his friends are around to play. He is bored and alone. Then Fox has an idea. If he cannot escape winter, he will fight it!


Haystack Mountain Trail is located 200 yards in back of Walker Elementary School, 33 West Main St., Liberty. The 1.1-mile footpath loop winds through a mixed northern hardwoods forest with a short spur to the open summit.

We are thrilled to announce that the Liberty Library was granted $2500 by the Maine State Library Maine Public Library Fund (MPLF) for a collaboration with the Friends of Haystack Mountain to set up a new StoryWalk® four times a year – one per season – for four years. We are excited about this outreach and hope you will enjoy them.

.*The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. Storywalk® is a registered service mark owned by Ms. Ferguson.
