Story Time

Story Time: A half hour program on Saturday mornings at 10:30am where we read a chosen book aloud followed by an experiential element from the book. Story time is directed toward children ages 5-9, but all are welcome.

While Story Time is complementary, please support us by building your child's library.

Toddler Time: A slightly shorter program geared toward a more wiggly crowd, Toddler Time is Thursday & Friday mornings at 10:30am.

It's all on our calendar so you don't have to remember.

Special Events

The Story Shop hosts at least one book-themed special event per quarter. Special events are offered for the littlest ones, grown ups, and everyone in between.

See upcoming special events & sign up.

Book Club

Family Book Club: Join us to read together as a family and as a community. Read the month's pick aloud at home and have purposeful conversations with the whole family.

Support us by purchasing the month's pick from our shelves if you don't already have it on yours.

Ladies' Book Club: Join us every third Thursday of the month to meet with women who love literature and to discuss the classics. We're reading through Penguin's Drop Cap series, a beautiful collector's set. You will get a copy of the book as well as light refreshments during the meeting.

Cost is $25 per person.
