Friday, April 22 – Sunday, May 15, 2022
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.
The Spring Sewickley StoryWalk begins Friday, April 22! 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.
The spring Sewickley StoryWalk runs from April 22 – May 15, 2022.
