Story Walk Sedro-Woolley Saturday March 9, 2013

If you love reading and you love food, Sedro-Woolley’s Story Walk is for you!  The second annual event will be held Saturday, March 9, with 12 downtown businesses participating.  Local Celebrity Readers will read children’s books with a “food” theme from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. with stories starting on the hour and half hour.  In addition, the Woolley Fiber Quilters will display quilts with a food theme at the participating businesses.  Last year’s event drew enthusiastic book lovers from all over Northwest Washington. 

Start on Metcalf Street; schedules will be posted in downtown windows and local guides will be on hand to help you find your favorites.  The Sedro-Woolley Public Library is choosing the books – this is a great way to sample popular literature for the young and young at heart!   Explore Sedro-Woolley’s downtown with covered sidewalks and easy strolling between story locations. 
Story venues span from the Community Bowling Center at the north end of downtown to Wells Fargo Bank at the south end.  The Sedro-Woolley Museum will also be a story location with lots of other fun exhibits to explore inside. 
This is a great event for kids and their parents, grandparents, and friends to enjoy.  It's certainly for the young and young at heart!  Last year we even had adults who came to hear the stories and see the quilts, but didn't bring any kids!  Well, everyone is welcome in downtown Sedro-Woolley!

Presented by the Sedro-Woolley Public Library, Sedro-Woolley Chamber of Commerce, and Woolley Fiber Quilters.  Please call the Library at 360-855-1166 for more information.

Right now, we're getting ready for Story Walk Sedro-Woolley on March 9th and our members are crafting quilts related to "food" for display at the Story Walk. 

We're also putting together a publicity plan for our annual quilt show. This year, our show, "Blast of Bubbles", will be held May 31, June 1&2, also in downtown Sedro-Woolley.
