StoryWalk®at Lititz Public Library!

A StoryWalk® combines two healthy activities, taking a walk and reading a book. It is a self-directed activity for people of all ages which encourages participants to read a children’s picture book in stages while walking along a short path. Participants are encouraged to complete a simple activity at each page. StoryWalks® promote literacy, physical activity, parental involvement, and ties to the community. Lititz Public Library installed our first StoryWalk® in July of 2020 and has continued them ever since, even branching out to include the Downtown version during the 2020 Winter Holiday season.

Our current installation features Santa’s Story by Will Hillenbrand. Santa is ready to leave on Christmas Eve, but he can’t find the reindeer anywhere. What are the reindeer doing and when will they be ready? Participate in the StoryWalk® to find out!

The StoryWalk® begins to the right of the Lititz Public Library entrance and moves counterclockwise around the library.  

Fun Fact – Our storywalk is 1267 feet or .24 miles long!
