StoryWalk in Downtown Kingston


Enjoy the picture book I Promise by Lebron James while strolling the streets of downtown Kingston. Find the pages of the story in the windows of partnering businesses, then finish your walk at the Central Branch to pick up your free magnet (until supplies last!)

Your adventure is spread over a few city blocks, so bring water, snacks, and maybe a stroller or wagon for the littlest legs in your family.
