Book your visit

You can spend your time at Little Red Reading House any way you like! Children can find a cozy nook to curl up in and read independently, or enjoy a story read aloud by their adult, or the House Hosts. At the end of your visit, each child can choose a free book to take home and keep.

Please Note: We often experience high demand for family visits and our schedule can be fully booked up. Please check back frequently as spots do become available when cancellations take place. You can also call us on the days we are open to see if anything has opened up. Conversely, if you need to cancel, PLEASE give us as much notice as possible so that someone else can take advantage of the spot.

My daughter was so excited to get her first chapter book and have a "this book belongs to" sticker with her name.
