Celebrating a community that reads, writes, creates, and connects! Summer evenings in the Wood River Valley are to be savored – especially when they include a stroll, food, refreshments, and entertainment. The staff of The Community Library incorporated these ingredients in the first LitWalk held August 19, 2015. The event was tied directly to our mission, highlighting how literacy enriches our community and it turned out to be a smashing success, with over 800 participants! Many of the elements that made the first LitWalk such a favorite, return in 2016. Once again, event attendees will be invited to stroll through Ketchum, enjoying “tastes” of literature and great food at each Library location (Main Library, Gold Mine Consign, Gold Mine Thrift and The Sun Valley Museum of History) and, Chapter One Bookstore, Iconoclast Books, and Warfield Distillery & Brewery.
Activities are free! Buy a food and beverage pass for $15 or as you like! The pass gives access to small bites and refreshments from Sun Valley Resort Catering, Rasberrys, Cristina’s, The Pioneer Saloon, Iconoclast Café, Sawtooth Brewery and Public House, Globus, Warfield Distillery & Brewery, Town Square Tavern, Bread Werks, KB’s, Leadville Espresso House, and Albertsons.
