Overview

In addition to being a children's bookstore, we host a summer concert series and book drive benefiting a local literacy program that helps struggling students. Every Wednesday June-August we hire musicians, jugglers, and other entertainers to delight children and their families. Suggested donation is a book per family but we don't turn anyone away. Locals often bring visitors from out of town!

Walking into Linden Tree is a young book lover's paradise. We went to see author Brandon Mull speak at the store and it was a terrific event. The staff are really wonderful, they have the best book recommendations and are happy to talk about books.
