Bring your young readers and listeners to Books of Wonder and join us for our ever-popular Storytime.
Each week, we choose several books from our shelves (based on the children attending) and sit down with children and their parents for a good, old-fashion, storytime. It's a fun filled time for all; please join us!
A knowledgeable resource in the children's book field, our staff began storytime at Books of Wonder several years ago and has been directing it ever since.

Butterfly-guarding princesses with magical gifts, a witch on a quest to save Camelot, and wonderfully creepy PNW thrills - this event has it all!

This is a not-to-be-missed event!
