Welcome to the Pasco Libraries StoryWalk®!


What is a StoryWalk®?

A StoryWalk® is an outdoor reading activity that allows children, families, and people of all ages to read a story while walking along a nature trail. Pages of a story are placed on posts on a trail, combining literacy and physical activity into one enjoyable experience. 

Check out the video below to see the walkthrough of a previous book featured in our StoryWalk®!

We currently have two StoryWalk® sites. Learn more by clicking on each location.
