Inktober is a month-long program that encourages artists of all levels, from doodlers to Vincent Van Gogh's, to draw something once a day and share it! And if you're not sure what to draw, you can pick up a drawing-prompt calendar to give you ideas.

If you have any art you want to share during Inktober, post it on Facebook or Instagram with #WaupacaInktober2019, and we'll share it on Facebook! Or, bring it to the library so we can scan it or hang it up on our displays upstairs or in the Teen Room!

Prompts can be found at the library, on our Facebook/Instagram pages, or at the official Inktober website: https://inktober.com/rules

The reading while hiking season has begun and the Waupaca Area Public Library his happy to announce that we have four StoryWalks to choose from.  All are on Waupaca's beautiful River Ridge Trail.

  • For the hike near Sunny Day Child Care, park near Sunny Day on Godfrey Drive and walk down the path that leads betweeen the daycare and the clinic.
  • Swan Park's StoryWalk starts to the south of the sledding hill.  
  • A Story Walk is on the nature trail along the Waupaca River behind the Waupaca Learning Center. It's best to park on the north end of the school and start on the trail that starts just past the rain garden.
  • The newest Story Walk is on the nature trail behind the Chain O'Lakes Elementary School. Watch for signs leading the way.

Thanks to Waupaca Park & Rec Dept.,Sunny Day, and the Waupaca School District for their partnership on this adventure. See attachments for maps of some Story Walks.
