Story Time at Island Books
Our bookstore is meant for people of all ages, but we particularly love to make it a special place for kids. Many of our adult customers have fond memories of growing up in the store. We want to keep developing that and are always looking for ways to nurture an early love of reading!
Monthly Family Story Time: At 6:30pm on the first Saturday of each month, we welcome acclaimed storytellers from all over the Puget Sound region. Most storytellers gear their materials for children three and older, and this tends to be a popular event for entire families (adults included!). Check our events calendar to see who's spinning tales on any given Saturday. We also always feature guest performances from our local beloved singer-storyteller Nancy Stewart (http://www.singwithourkids.com).
Weekly Storybook Corner: At 10:30am on Wednesdays, bring your little ones in to enjoy popular picture books read by our staff. You'll find Nancy Stewart here from time to time too.
