Located on the outdoor path off of Ravinia Ave., adjacent to Village Center North Pond, the Orland Park Public Library StoryWalk® is a delightful new way to read and enjoy a story.
Pages from a children's book have been framed and attached to wooden posts which have been installed along the path. Walk and read while enjoying the beautiful outdoors with your friends and family.
The stories will change four times a year, just like the seasons. There will also be fun activity suggestions, book recommendations, and a calendar of events that will rotate with each new book.
This reading adventure has been made possible through the collaboration of the Orland Park Public Library and the Village of Orland Park.
