As the brainchild of two longtime educators, Volumes Bookcafe and Volumes Bookstore are dedicated to fostering a love of reading in kids of all ages. We feature heavily curated Children's, Middle Grade and Young Adult sections, and offer a number of kid-oriented events.
Saturdays at 10:30am (Wicker Park) and 11am (900N) and Tuesdays at 10:30am (Wicker Park), Volumes owners Kimberly and Rebecca host story time in our Kids Corner! Both sisters pull from their extensive experience to pick books best suited to each week's audience - all ages welcome! We read books, sing songs and make crafts! $5 suggested donation per session
You know those little pieces of paper hanging off the shelves? We call them Shelf Talkers, and they're there to let people know what books we loved! If you know a kid obsessed with a book they've read, let us know, and they can write their own mini-review to put on the shelves!
For a $3 cash donation, you can take home your very own mystery book! Browse our selection of wrapped and staff-decorated Advanced Reader Copies (ARCs) of newly released books. Proceeds will go to funding library and classroom book contributions, and author events in local schools.
