An imaginative play space dedicated to sharing the delights of reading with young children and their families, The Reader Storybarn exists to spark a life-long love of books and reading, and an unending curiosity to explore the astonishing worlds of our imaginations The Storybarn was created by The Reader, a national charity that wants to bring about a Reading Revolution so that everyone can experience and enjoy great literature, which we believe is a tool for helping humans survive and live well.
