One of my biggest missions with storytime is creating community. It is my goal to give families and caregivers a chance to be with others, share literacy and dance, in a safe environment. 

Check out the section below to see where I will be and when!

Bring your shakers, scarves and musical instruments and let's have some fun!

For inclimate weather and school cancellations, I follow Portland Public Schools.


The Literacy Lady PDX Story

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 event, come say hello! I will most likely have a sticker and high-five to give!







Contact me for birthday parties, classes and storytimes with the kiddos in your life. Meeting and connecting is my passion, it makes sharing literacy so much fun!

Masks are required at all storytimes and classes for children 3 and up! If you aren't feeling well, we ask that you stay home and feel better, so we can get back to reading together soon!
