Sewickley Storywalk is Back!

Join us May 3 – 23, 2021 for a nature walk and reading.

FREE Event the Entire Family can Enjoy!

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 3, 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. At Fern Hollow Nature Center, visitors can enjoy reading The Hikeby Alison Farrell. Allegheny Land Trust – Audubon Greenway’s location features The Hidden Rainbowby Christie Matheson. Visitors to Mary Roberts Reinhart Nature Park can read Fairy Scienceby Ashley Spires, while Ohio Township Nature Center visitors can enjoy the title How to Find a Birdby Jennifer Ward. The Henle Park location in Leetsdale is new to this season’s Sewickley StoryWalk. Visitors to the park can read Hank’s Big Dayby Evan Kuhlman during their stroll.

All participants are encouraged to wear masks and practice social distancing during their visit. Enjoy the transitions of spring, take a walk and read a book together with your family!

The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. StoryWalk® is a registered service mark owned by Ms. Ferguson. The library co-hosts each Sewickley StoryWalk with community partners: Fern Hollow Nature Center, Allegheny Land Trust, Mary Roberts Reinhart Nature Park, Ohio Township Nature Center and the Borough of Leetsdale.
