Free Books For Ottawa Kids!

A new pop-up book “store” has opened up in the Overbrook/Vanier area.  Kids and parents can get new and gently used children’s books  - for free! 

Twice Upon A Time / Il ├ętait deux fois is the brainchild of librarian Alexandra Yarrow.  Yarrow knows that even though Ottawa has an excellent public library system, kids also need books of their own at home. “Books are expensive,” said Yarrow.  “We want to make good quality books available to all families in Ottawa.” 

Twice Upon A Time / Il ├ętait deux fois has books of all kinds in English and French for kids up to 12 years old.  We are open Thursdays between 3:30 and 5:30pm and Saturdays between 11:00am and 1:00pm.   Join us at Heartwood House, 404 McArthur Ave.  Or invite us to set up a book table at your next community event!
