Story Trails at the Library!

Spread the love

We invite you to take a walk and read a book at one of the library’s Story Trails!

A Story Trail includes pages of a picture book mounted on numbered signs.  Families can walk from sign to sign to read and talk about the story.  Each sign also features an activity or question to draw the readers into the story.   They’re a great way for kids (and their adults!) to enjoy the outdoors and reading at the same time.


Stop by one of these locations to enjoy a Story Trail!

  • Boardman Park
  • Canfield Library
  • Poland Library

Each location has a different story so you can visit them all!

Have fun, and if you share your Story Trail photos online, tag us at LibraryMahoningCounty and #PLYMCStoryTrail. We’d love to see them!
