What is a StoryWalk®?
StoryWalk® is an innovative and delightful way for children – and families – to enjoy reading and the outdoors at the same time. Laminated pages from a children’s book are attached to yard signs, which are installed along an outdoor path. As you stroll down the trail, you are directed to the next page in the story.
Where is the StoryWalk®?
The South Fayette Township Library Storywalk® can be found at the top of the Innovation Trail, located behind the South Fayette High School. Recommended parking is located on the left side of the South Fayette Intermediate School (parking is also available in front of the South Fayette Intermediate School) directly across from the soccer field. Just a short walk across the soccer field will lead directly to the StoryWalk (look for signs!).

This month's story:
In the Tall, Tall Grass by Denise Fleming
If you were a caterpillar crawling through the grass on a sunny afternoon, what would you see? Beginning as the sun is high in the sky and ending as fireflies blink and the moon rises, this is a backyard tour no one will want to miss.
Each StoryWalk® sign features a page from the story, a fun fact, and recommended movements and motion! This is a story you won’t want to read just once!

South Fayette Wetland Trail
As you finish the StoryWalk®, you may want to venture just a little further to the South Fayette Wetland Trail. Originally constructed by the South Fayette Conservation Group in 2007, the scenic trail leads to the wetland, which covers nearly an acre and required nearly 1,700 plants from 50 different species at the time of its creation. Wetlands provide storage for rain water and a habitat for wildlife. This trail makes for a wonderful excursion, but does include some hills and slightly rough terrain so make sure to come prepared (strollers not recommended).
