Birthday Parties

We love to read books and we love birthdays, and we really love to read books at birthdays.

Our birthday party package is set up for 12 children. At the price of $225 (additional children may be added for $5 per child), your party will include:
• Use of our birthday party room for two hours
• 1/2 hour themed storytime of birthday person’s choosing. Let your imagination run wild! We have done princesses, pirates, princesses and pirates, superheroes, ducks, monkeys, circus–you name it and we will work with you to put together several good stories for the crowd!
• Paper goods (plates, napkins, tablecloths in solid colors)

We require a $100 non-refundable deposit in order to secure your birthday party date and time. This deposit will be put towards your final balance, which is to be paid on the day of the party. You can begin setup for the party up to 30 minutes beforehand, unless otherwise arranged with us (see below). You are not responsible for clean up, and must leave and pay promptly once the time slot is up. Please feel free to inquire about any special arrangements you are considering as far in advance as possible-- we love helping with birthdays, and the more time you give us to accommodate, the more likely we are able to do so!

Should you find that you need more time for set up or for the party, we can accommodate only if there are no other events or parties taking place within the desired time. Fees for additional time are as follows:
$50 per hour for extra setup time
$100 per hour for extra party time
This is pro-ratable (ie: $25 for an extra half hour of setup time, etc) 

Please note: Birthday parties are held in our events space. This space, which is a loft overlooking the bookstore, is not wheelchair accessible.
