Weekly Friday Morning
Storytime + Craft Activity


Please join us every Friday morning at 10:30 a.m. for a storytime and craft. We alternate storytime partners every other week, with each week featuring either Maggie Mae's Kids Mobile Bookshop or Annie Bloom's Books.

Friday, April 10 @ 10:30 a.m.

The storytime is free for all ages, though geared toward toddler and preschoolers. From 10:30-11, we offer a storytime craft special: $5 for two ornamental craft bases. If your child would like to do something other than the ornamental craft, they are welcome to choose a regularly-priced ($12) base.

Announcements from Our Community Partners

Looking for a fun and educational opportunity for your middle or high school student this summer? Look no further!

  • WRITE ABOUTS | For Middle OR High School Students

    Join us for guided "travel-writing" experiences that we call Write Abouts. These workshops are designed to give students the opportunity to explore Portland sights and culture through the powerful medium of language. Students get the opportunity to associate writing with fun and adventure. (Who knew that could be possible?) Form your own Write About and choose from our current menu offerings. Inscribe is happy to work with individual group needs and schedules.
  • BOOKS CLUBS | For Elementary, Middle, and High School Students

    What would summer be without the pleasure of reading a great story? Inscribe Educators bring customized reading and discussion experiences to student groups in their homes. Parents and students form the groups and choose a location, while Inscribe facilitates the learning experience. Form a group, choose a classic or contemporary book from our Inscribe Summer reading list, and create a three or four week summer meeting schedule with us.
  • INDIVIDUAL SUMMER LEARNING PACKAGES | For learners of all ages!

    Whether students are looking for a creative summer language experience or to strengthen fundamental thinking, reading, and writing skills for the coming school year, our flexible summer learning packages provide the elasticity needed for every learner. Inscribe Educators will customize a flexible 1-6 week session, tailored to the individual's needs and summer calendar. Work session locations are also open, allowing for private appointments at our home offices or students' homes. Contact us to create a summer meeting schedule and for specific pricing at

INSCRIBE is an educational services organization dedicated to developing the skills of writers and equipping educators with tools to inspire their students. We are inspired educators who design tailored programs and experiences in Literacy, Language Arts, and Writing. We embrace the holistic nature of education—valuing imagination as much as critical thinking.  We provide a variety of services from creative workshops to academic coaching, in order to reach learners from middle through graduate school.
