A bookstore-without-walls® for kids, teens, families, and educators in the Bronx and beyond.
Since we launched in 2017, the core values that we use to guide our work have been joy, justice, and community. Thank you for joining us in promoting joyful reading experiences that center the stories, identities, and experiences of young people in our Bronx community and beyond.
This edition of our weekly newsletter is especially for our Boogie Down Storytime community. For other updates, please email us to update your subscription.
We want to hear from you!
Please take this 1-minute survey to tell us about your family's Boogie Down Storytime preferences.
It’s official: Boogie Down Storytime is going to be back in person as of this weekend. We are so excited to see all of our friends this summer. We missed sharing stories and movement in person with you all. We can’t wait to get out there and read your favorite books and do your favorite yoga poses. (Wes especially can’t wait to enjoy his post-Storytime Sausage Sammie at Mottley Kitchen, and Jazy can’t wait to practice yoga in all of the gardens throughout the Bronx.)
Wes will be there. Jazy will be there. Make sure you are too!
Here at Boogie Down Books, our core values are joy, justice, and community. Putting justice at the center of our work means that we are committed to making sure that every Bronx child who wants to attend Storytime with us can do so. That's why we’re asking audience members at some of our outdoor sites to pay $10 per family to subsidize pay-what-you-can admission at other sites. Thank you for joining us in making sure that our Storytime community promotes literacy justice for all young readers in the Bronx and beyond.
Boogie Down Books® brings joyful reading experiences and inspiring community events to kids, teens, families, and educators in the Bronx and beyond. Follow us for info about pop-up events, mobile book sales, author events, and workshops.
