It's open!: New children's bookstore in Alexandria

Filed Under:

The new children's bookstore in Old Town - Hooray for Books - celebrated its grand opening last weekend. Located in the same King St. storefront as its longtime predecessor, A Likely Story, this new and independent kids' store stocks books for all ages, as well as selected puzzles and toys. Check out this story about the store from the Washington Post.

Hooray for Books is currently hosting two themed storytimes: Friday at 10:30 a.m. for ages 2 and under, and Saturday at 11 a.m. for ages 2+.

Please stop by and show them the love. Keeping an independent bookstore of any size or niche alive is tough these days - but even more so in the high-rent district and serving the child/family market. We are so glad to see this newcomer open its doors - and we want to help keep them open for years to come!
