This will be the first total solar eclipse visible in the continental United States in 38 years.  While Waupaca is not on the path of a total solar eclipse, we experience a partial viewing.  NASA has sent us special eclipse glasses to safely view this event. Don't miss learning about eclipses because the next one that is over the US is in April 2014.  Watch for more details about times and activities.

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.
