September 2021


Since September is the start of school AND Library Card Sign-Up Month, our StoryWalk® this month celebrates the simple joys kids can find when they have the right spirit! Clap along with beautiful oil-on-canvas illustrations as you capture the beat of our street! Award-winning illustrator Frank Morrison and Connie Schofield-Morrison have created a rollicking read that will get any kid in the mood to boogie with, I Got the Rhythm!



To get your child their own library card (Marlborough residents), just stop in RML anytime!

Our StoryWalk® was imagined and constructed by local resident Cameron McDonald in partnership with the Library. Cameron is a member of Boy Scout Troop 39 and completed the StoryWalk® in 2021 for his Eagle Scout project.



Cameron and his team of volunteers installed 16 new displays along the walkway at the Library to form a StoryWalk® that is accessible by all. It was designed with children and families in mind, and it is meant to promote reading and exercise in the outdoors. 



This project took several months of planning and several workdays with many volunteers to execute and complete. Cameron would like to thank everyone that supported him and his project, including all donations and contributions from the community, family and friends. It is the hope of Cameron and the Library that this project will be a source of great enjoyment for families visiting the library from throughout the town and surrounding area.
