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!
