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

Book Club

The Story Shop Book Club is for our middle grade readers and participation is decided by parental discretion. Upon registration, the participant will receive a copy of the book and background information about the book and the author.

Book Club is an experience, bringing the book to life through sight, taste, smell, etc., and meets once per month to discuss the chosen book. An extra meeting may be arranged for a field trip to a book related exhibit, play, or experience.
