Enchanted Chapters, opening October 5, is a place where dreams and imagination are encouraged!
When you walk in you will notice that earthy tones, art and live plants surround the space. And be sure to say hello to their friendly shop pets! Pulling inspiration from favorites such as Where the Wild Things Are, owner Andrea wanted to create an environment that is far from sterile. “As a mother of four I was often disappointed with the youth book offerings in most bookstores. How can we expect imaginations to grow in an environment lacking exactly that? In an age where technology thrives, it is our goal to bring a sense of wonder and nature to the hearts and minds of our community.” Two of Andrea’s children are diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder which is why she is dedicated to creating a space that all children can enjoy. Enchanted Chapters focuses on inclusion and they want to encourage individuals with all abilities to enjoy their space.
“Although Enchanted Chapters is a youth focused bookstore, we also have a variety of genres and titles for all ages including board books to young adult titles, and graphic novels to cookbooks. Aside from books, we also carry a selection of unique toys and gifts. Our staff is made up book lovers, writers, and teachers. We all have something special to offer and together we make a wonderful team. We want the community to see us as a meeting ground to get to know others within the community who share similar interests. We plan on doing this by offering monthly book clubs, weekly story times, family movie and game nights, and we even host birthday parties in our private event space!”
