Story Stroll spotlights a local cartoonist | News, Sports, Jobs


Two new books and cartoons by a local artist have been added to the History Walk along the Minot’s Oak Park Walking Trail.

“Even when you’re outside, you can still read! said Randi Monley, the children’s librarian at the Minot Public Library.

The walk features enlarged pages of children’s books that have been enlarged, laminated and nailed to either side of a board along the way.

The display changes monthly during the summer months.

New books include “One is a snail, ten is a crab” by April Pulley Sayre and Jeff Sayre and “Mom, do you love me? “ by Barbara M. Joosse. Also featured are several Timmothy Timm cartoons from Minot, featuring hamsters Titus and Philemon and their owner, Joe.

This will be the last time the park books will be updated for this season.

Monley said the Story Stroll encourages literacy and parents will be able to read to their children as they take a walk in the park.

The Story Stroll was launched in 2016 and is a collaboration between Minot Public Library, Ward County Library, Adult Learning Center, MPS Title I Program, and Minot Park District. It is partially funded by grants, including a recent grant from Dollar General.
