Story Book Trail at Lake Tomahawk starting to come together

What better place to read a picture book than by a lake?

That’s what Steve and Sally Cochran and Melisa Pressley thought when they introduced the idea of ​​a Story Book Trail at Lake Tomahawk.

The Cochrans work with the Black Mountain Greenways and Trails Commission. At a community input meeting, Pressley, the Black Mountain Library branch manager, presented the idea for a story trail for children.

“As we got involved in research, we were really pleased to see that there was a good model of a program that worked and a template to follow,” Steve Cochran said.

The model, courtesy of the Governor’s Early Literacy Foundation in Tennessee, outlines steps for groups who may want to undertake such a project. The model consists of a 15 page step-by-step guide from fundraising to building.
