The Kingsport Public Library is excited to announce the book in the StoryWalk®* in Glen Bruce Park has been updated for the fall.

Just in time for the fall season, the new StoryWalk® book is The Day the Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt. Enjoy figuring out why the crayons quit as you walk around Glen Bruce Park. The StoryWalk® consists of 20 displays placed around the park. Each display contains a page of a picture book along with questions or activities for families to enjoy together. Visit all 20 displays to read the entire story.

At the end of the story there is an opportunity for visitors to share their thoughts and vote for the next book. The library changes the stories quarterly, and new books will be announced on Facebook at

Visitors are encouraged to share photos via social media and tag the Kingsport Public Library on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Participants also are encouraged to visit the library to check out books to share together in the park or at home.
