Literacy Lady

Hi Literacy Lovers, I am Sarah, Literacy Lady PDX! I am thrilled to be able to connect with so many communities in the Portland Metro area. Sharing literacy has been my passion for as long as I can remember!


As a child, I loved reading (and I still do). Some of my favorites were the Ramona Quimby books, Anne of Green Gables, The Babysitters Club and the back of the cereal box at breakfast.


One of the biggest goals for my storytimes and classes is to bring people together and help children and their caregivers get back to socializing in a safe way. Watching your children grow makes my heart sing during each storytime and class. I work hard to collaborate with local businesses and to get as many books into the hands of children and families as possible. 

If you see me at an event, come say hello! I will most likely have a sticker and high-five to give!

Keep Reading, 


Literacy Lady PDX


If you aren't feeling well, we ask that you stay home and feel better (fever free for 24 hours), so we can get back to reading together soon!

Pediatric Cancer Awareness Fundraiser 

Every year, for the past 6 years, I have run a fundraiser for Pediatric Cancer Awareness month. This year, I am doing something a little different. All the proceeds will go towards books and bedside buddies (plushies like the Whatif Monster and Nibbles) being donated to Embrace Compassion and Candlelighters for Children with Cancer – Oregon/SW Washington.

The vision of this fundraiser is to bring awareness to Pediatric Cancer, support local organizations and bring communities affected by childhood Cancer a little extra joy. Each donation will reserve a spot on a mural being painted at Playforest in SE Portland. The spot will then be painted by children in the community with rainbows, sunshine, and anything else that their creativity brings.

Storytime Starter Kit

Give the gift of storytime with the Literacy Lady PDX Storytime Starter Kit! This kit includes many of the materials used during storytime with Ms. Sarah. Choose between the Whatif Monster or Nibbles, stamp all day with the rainbow stamp and click your sticks! The bubbles are the same as the kind that is used in storytime at Hammer + Jacks and in the Literacy Lounge at Playforest. 

"Sarah/Literacy Lady PDX is a wonderful storyteller and such a positive, uplifting presence. We have attended her story times in the community and are lucky enough to have enrolled in one of her classes for toddlers. Sarah encourages my daughter to be herself and creates a welcoming space for all. Can’t say enough great things!!"
