Owned by Emily French, the business is "committed to offering quality books and safe, natural toys to children from ages 0-6," according to the bookshop's website. "We strive to engage the community by offering weekly story times, special events, and classes. We endeavor to be environmentally friendly by recycling gently loved children's books from local families back into the community for new families. Little Bookworm is dedicated to offering excellent, hands-on customer service for all our guests. It is our ultimate goal to bring families together to engage with each other or with the local community. Books are an excellent way to connect with children, and we seek to foster that relationship and connection."
