Sunday, August 7 – Sunday, August 28

The Sewickley Public Library invites you to grab the family and take a stroll through one of six 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.

The latest Sewickley StoryWalk begins Sunday, August 7th! Families can visit the sites to take a self-guided walk around the parks and read a book as they go. Different “back-to-school” themed picture book stories are featured at each site.

The Sewickley StoryWalk runs from August 7 – 28, 2022.
