Enjoy Summer Reading through the Story Trail at Friendship Park
Join us as we kick-off a new story trail this summer at Friendship Park! The story trail is in collaboration with the Columbus Metropolitan Library and Gahanna Lincoln High School and is part of the Gahanna Library’s Summer Reading Program encouraging families to engage in the outdoors through reading throughout the summer.
This year's story, "The Friendship Bridge," celebrates the beauty of diversity as two young girls from different cultures meet on a bridge and form a lasting friendship. The story was
written by students Emerson Fry, Najma Gureye, Frankie Nuss, Mikayla Barbe-Cox, Amun Jama and Natalie Fry. The story is beautifully illustrated by Alyssa Lee, a junior at Gahanna Lincoln High School. Lee’s artwork is best described as vector illustration, an industry standard used by design professionals for creating sequential imagery similar to the concepts used in storyboards, cartoons and graphic novels.
The story is appropriate for readers of all ages. Storyboards are set low to the ground for children to explore each piece of framed art and the Ready to Read prompts are provided by the Gahanna library. Attendees can visit the story trail all summer and during park hours.
