Summer Story Time

Posted by | June 13, 2018 | 1 Fun to Enjoy | No Comments

Let your children soak in a summer story while you browse for books, enjoy a coffee break, or reserve lunch for the family.  Summer Story Time at Northeast Seattle bookstores and libraries can be exploring time rather than boring time when you time it with other activities. And, no matter much you crave sunshine, sometimes you and the kids just want to escape the heat.

That’s why this season’s “FUN TO ENJOY” is SUMMER STORY TIME.

Ravenna Third Place Books on NE 65th Street at 20th Ave NE is an ideal location for parent fun while the kids are enjoying story time because you can explore their extensive collection and cozy corners. You can also enjoy the coffee and food at Vios or consider an outing another time at Third Place Pub (downstairs).

Third Place Books also has a low-stress “Summer Reading Challenge  for kids through August 31. Read books, keep track, get prizes.
