In partnership with the Orange County Library System, the Healthy West Orange Arts and Heritage Center at the Town of Oakland is hosting a StoryWalk this week. 

StoryWalk is a way for locals to enjoy the benefits of reading and the outdoors at the same time. Participants can exercise their body and mind as they have fun reading a story and enjoying nature along the way.

The story on display will be Maybe Something Beautiful by F. Isabel Campoy and Theresa Howell. The book is based on the true story of the Urban Art Trail in California and follows Mira and her neighbors as they discover how art can inspire transformation. 

The StoryWalk will be on display in Oakland at the Healthy West Orange Arts and Heritage Center located at 126 Petris Ave.

There is no registration for the event and it will run from 1:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., weather permitting.

The next StoryWalk will be on Saturday, Oct. 23 in Horizon West beginning at 6 p.m. The theme will be a Spooky StoryWalk so participants are encouraged to bring flashlights and courage.
