Raising a Reader

Start a library for the young reader in your life with Mrs. Dalloway's Little Library subscription service! 

Tell us the age of the child you're shopping for and a little about their interests, then we choose one book to send each month that will surprise and delight.

The response thus far has been gratifying, and we appreciate getting notes like this from a mother with a 9-year-old boy who loves fantasy: "Thank you for all of your effort on this  It has been a wonderful experience for him."

For more information about Little Library, speak to one of our booksellers at 510-704-8222, or visit our website

To sign up, email for young readers, or for young adults.


Weekly Story Time - Thursdays, 10:30 AM

We read a mix of classics and new favorites for ages 2-5, but everyone is welcome.

"A treat for any Jane Austen fan . . . a fascinating window into a man's experience in a largely female world. Scheinman is a wonderful guide to the world of Austen, and this honest and thoughtful discussion of the role Austen's works have played in his family will delight any Janeite." --Booklist
