Sewickley Story Time takes off on Saturday, April 24th!

Families are invited to share a little old-fashioned entertainment on Saturday, April 24th, beginning at 11 am, as part of "Sewickley Story Time," an event being sponsored by Laughlin Children's Center, The Sewickley Public Library, Fun Buy the Pound, and Penguin Bookshop.

Story-tellers will spin yards at three different locations: Laughlin, the library, and Fun Buy the Pound, a great toy store located next to The Sewickley Herald offices. The story-tellers will be accompanied by Canine Good Citizen-trained dogs from Animal Friends' cadre of volunteers. Each location will offer stories at 11 am, 11:20, 11:40, and noon, and families are encouraged to visit all three locations to hear the different stories, as well as collect a unique sticker from each site. Children who collect all three stickers can stop by the Animal Friends booth on Broad Street that day for a special treat.

PLEASE NOTE: Because this event includes dogs from Animal Friends' "Reading with Rover" program, neighborhood pets cannot attend Story Time. Sorry, Spot--you'll just have to ask your people to read you a story at home!

Sewickley Story Time is part of Sewickley Unleashed, a daylong event coordinated by the Sewickley Valley Chamber of Commerce, and sponsored in part by Trib Total Media.
