Second Star to the Right is a new and gently loved children’s and young adult bookstore. We also offer parenting books, journals, and a selection of books in Spanish from infant to Young Adult.

Owned and operated by former teachers, we pride ourselves on assisting customers with knowledgeable and unique book choices. In this digital world, we help keep children with their arms around books and ears listening to the magic of stories.

In addition to our wide selection of books, we also offer a fun assortment of toys! Our Toy Room opened in May 2016 and has expanded over the past months to include educational and sustainable toys and dress up items that inspire imaginative play. We also offer tutoring services through high school. Be sure to stay up to date on all of our author visits, special events and themed Storytimes by viewing this month’s Event Calendar! Join us for Storytime every day at 10:30am. We look forward to seeing you very soon!

Baby Storytime at Second Star

We are proud to offer a special and unique Baby Storytime at our cozy and welcoming store! Baby Storytime focuses on ways that parents and caregivers can interact with their children while reading. We will give you fun ideas of things to do and songs to sing with your babies that encourage interaction and early literacy. We will then show you how to model those interactions for them. Each event will include two or three short books and also have opportunities for you to read a book or two to your little one. This event will feature songs, rhymes, lap bounces, and playtime at the end. Your babies can play and parents and caregivers can chat! We look forward to seeing you at our next Baby Storytime!
