Doherty Campus Becomes an Open Book

A walk across Doherty Campus tells a story. As a way of building a literary experience into all students’ outdoor experiences and class-to-class transitions, Doherty librarian Jo Schnirring recently installed a series of lawn signs bearing the images of book pages from “Otis” by Loren Long. The progressive installation is posted along the walkway near Jones Hall leading to the cafeteria for everyone to enjoy. “It has been so beautiful outside and we have had so many outdoor learning experiences, I thought it would be great to present a book that the students and classes can walk by and read” said Schnirring. “Students can read the book in English and Spanish as they go.” Schnirring said, “The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, Vermont, and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library.
