Story Stroll

Erika McGann’s book, Wee Donkey’s Treasure Hunt is available as a ‘story stroll’ in playgrounds and parks across Laois in summer 2022. Pages of the book on boards are displayed and families can walk around our green spaces - reading this beautiful publication at the same time!

This initiative is a collaboration between Laois County Library Service, Erika McGann, O’Brien Press, Laois County Council Sports Section and primary schools. It promotes reading and library use among families with amore outdoor focus. 

Story Stroll will be in the following locations on these dates:

Mountrath Playground        July 16 – July 21

Abbeyleix Playground         July 23 – August 4

Stradbally Playground         August 6 – August 11

Portarlington Park                August 13 – August 31

Families are invited to participate in a Wee Donkey Quiz and will receive a prize at the local library for doing so!
