What is a StoryWalk® ?

A StoryWalk® is an innovative and exciting way for children and adults to enjoy reading and the outdoors together.

Pages from a children’s book are installed along a path or in the windows of local businesses. As you stroll along the route, you are directed to the next page in the story. 

Follow the pages of the book and enjoy walking and talking with your children as you read the story together. StoryWalks® encourage literacy, reading, health, connection and play!


Look out for these books and more in your community!

Visit your local library to ask if they have an upcoming StoryWalk® or check the online events calendar.
