With play areas, adorable gifts, discounted books, and more, our kids' departments are one of the best-loved areas of our Tempe and Phoenix stores!

We have fulltime children's book experts, weekly storytimes, and many events that cater to children, teens and anyone who loves kids' books. We don't leave educators and librarians out — we also partner with hundreds of schools, fill bulk orders, and have the ability to help you host legendary bestselling authors for your school! To learn more about the programs, offers, services, and (of course) great books we have for kids, click the links below.
