This Spring the Sewickley Public Library invites you to grab the family and take a stroll through one of five different community StoryWalks set up throughout the Quaker Valley. A StoryWalk® places pages from a children’s picture book along a walking path so that children and their caregivers may enjoy nature and reading together.
Starting Monday, May 3rd, families can visit the five Sewickley StoryWalk sites to take a self-guided walk around the parks and read a book as they go. Different spring-themed picture book stories are featured at each site. We are pleased to announce that Henle Park is new to this season’s Sewickley StoryWalk.
