It’s our eleventh year of Nordic Stories, geared toward preschool-aged children and their grown-ups. Held the first Thursday of each month, Nordic Stories features children’s stories from the Nordic countries, along with fun craft projects.

From December 2017 to April 2018, while we are moving into our new facility, Nordic Stories will be hosted by the wonderful Secret Garden Books in downtown Ballard! To work better with their hours, the program will begin at 10:30am; it will remain on the first Thursday of the month. Secret Garden Books is located at 2214 NW Market Street.

Cost: Free (Note: No reservations, not suitable for large groups)
