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.
An all-new StoryWalk begins Monday, June 21! 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 summer-themed picture book stories are featured at each site. We are pleased to announce that Henle Park is new to this season’s Sewickley StoryWalks.
During your visit, don’t forget to pickup your Sewickley StoryWalk Passport! Fill out the information at each of the StoryWalk stops during your visit and return it to the library to be entered to win a special prize.
