Greenlight offers free book events and programming for kids, teens and families in both of our store locations!
Ages 3 to 8:
Saturday Author Story Time
11:30 AM in Fort Greene, 1:30 PM in Prospect Lefferts Gardens
Saturday Story Time is geared toward kids ages 3 to 8 and their families. Authors and illustrators of picture books often visit us on Saturdays to read from their new books, and neighborhood performers or the Greenlight staff sometimes read as well. There are always great stories and often activities and crafts too! Check our Events Calendar for an updated schedule of featured authors. Saturday Story Time is geared toward kids who are old enough to enjoy listening to a story, asking questions and working on crafts.
Ages 9 to 12:
Greenlight Young Readers Book Group
