Sandman Storytime

Award winning costumed characters visit the bookshop for an interactive storytime event. Heroes and princesses pose for pictures with the kids! Stop by and meet these beloved characters from the world of literature.

The story begins at 10:30 am. Afterwards, there is an orderly lineup for photos, so every guest can talk to his or her favorite princess-fairy-pirate. Cameras are welcome (remember to tag us when you post). Guests of all ages may wear costumes if they wish. This event is FREE!

To see our storytime in action with the book "Don't Push The Button!" click here.
