For the Family

We love our families with kiddos! The Next Chapter is committed to nourishing the love of reading and learning in the youngest of our community, and we do so in a variety of ways. Peruse the list of recurring events and services we offer, as well as the curated book lists at the bottom of the page for some new reading ideas!

  • The Next Chapter Kids Corner
    • We have created a fun and inviting Kids Corner at the store, complete with our fan-favorite penguin chair, reading camper, and kids table! Kids can discover books, play, and relax while parents are shopping in a space made just for them.
  • Story Time
    • This FREE event happens every Saturday at 11am. Join Alexis for 3 themed stories, a craft, and a sweet treat. Best suited for younger kids, toddler-8 years old.
  • Quarterly Holiday Parties
    • Once per quarter, Story Time goes BIG for a holiday party! We will still read 3 themed stories, but the whole store is set up for multiple crafts, games, and activities, with even more treats!
  • Kid's Book Box Subscription
    • Build your child's picture book library one month at a time with this hand-picked subscription service! Each month your child will receive a brand-new-release hardback picture book selected by Alexis and Angela, plus a welcome gift with your first month.

  • Middle Grade Book Club
    • A book club for readers 8-11 years old! The club meets every other month with Alexis to discuss their most recent read and do an activity related to the book. This is great for excited readers in the late-elementary to early-middle-school years. To find out more, email Alexis at or talk to us in the store!
