LINKLINK TRANSIT’s route to Alamance Community College is funded by United Way of Alamance County in partnership with Alamance County Government, Hayden Harman Foundation, and Alamance Community College, connecting members of our community to critical educational services and job training. For routes, a bus tracker and more information, visit the Link Transit website.
STORYWALK® is an innovative way for children to simultaneously enjoy reading and active play, as pages from a children’s book are deconstructed and attached to stakes along an outdoor path. United Way has presented five stories in Alamance County through Community Council. Sponsorship and volunteer opportunities are available for future sites. Learn more about our locations and books currently in rotation!

The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library.
