Review from the crowd:
Absolutely a wonderful addition to the neighborhood. It is a big store with just children’s books, some variety in Spanish and other languages. I was told that if there is a request and enough staff, they can offer story time anytime. They do have a schedule with times. My kids LOVED this store!
