Let’s Play Books Bookstore Room Rental Guidelines            

Let’s Play Books Bookstore has two spaces that may be rented by Let’s Play Books members or through A Storybook Party. Membership must be current, and account in good standing. The bookstore is an old building, full of charm. In other words, there are special considerations! We are also a full service bookstore, and the needs of the bookstore must always come first. Reservations may be made up to 3 months in advance, however, Let’s Play Books reserves the right to reschedule the reservation up to 45 days in advance.
