Friday, June 16 – Sunday, July 2
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 latest Sewickley StoryWalk begins Friday, June 16th! Families can visit each site 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. The Sewickley StoryWalk runs from June 16 – July 2, 2023.
