How to find us:

We are located at Bank and Fifth Avenue in Ottawa’s Glebe area. Our store is on the second level of the Fifth Avenue Court, which has convenient (and FREE) underground parking. There is an elevator for stroller access.

Story time continues every Friday morning at 10 a.m. Bring your toddlers and preschoolers by to share our love of books, and maybe a couple of songs thrown in for good measure. Caffeinate and come up!


Monday – Thursday 9:30 a.m. -5:00 p.m.
Friday 9:30 a.m. – 8:00 p.m.
Saturday 9:30 a.m. -5:00 p.m.
On Sundays, the courtyard is locked, so we stay at home.
