KENDALLVILLE — It’s official…winter is here. Love it or hate it, it comes every year (hey, that rhymes!).

“Winter is Here” by Kevin Henkes depicts what winter looks and feels like, and things people do in the winter. This would be a great walk for families, so that parents can talk to their children about how winter in the book is the same or different from the winter we’re having in northeast Indiana. Is there snow on the ground? Is the sky gray or is it sunny?

This book will be available on the Adventure Walks, beginning Jan. 2 through the end of the month.

The Adventure Walk in Rome City consists of nine stations that start at Grant Park and continue along a walkway to Kelly Park.

In Kendallville, the walk of 18 stations starts at the front of the Kendallville Public Library and then continues in a loop around the library through the west side of Bixler Lake Park. Maps for both locations are available on the library’s website at

The Adventure Walks would not have been possible without the generosity of the library’s donors and partners. The Kendallville Park Department and Rome City Park Department worked enthusiastically with the library in the planning stages of this project, and assisted with much of the labor to install the stands.

Alum-Elec Structures donated all the materials and fabrication for the stands, a huge cost savings to the library. Wick-Fab, Kendallville Glass, Kendallville Do-It Center, and Kline Builders all donated all or a portion of the materials and labor needed for the project.
