Update: As you may know, Borders all over the US have closed, including all in the Triangle area.
From Sarah C.:
Next door to Monkey Joe’s in Cary is a slightly calmer activity to enjoy – Borders bookstore. Tucked into the back is their kids section. Filled with a vast amount of books and gifts, it also offers tables to sit and read at as well as an activity table.
Storytimes are offered Wednesdays at 11am. D and I arrived too late, but had a great time anyway. We enjoyed looking at the board books and having our “own” storytime – I read out loud while D pointed and babbled. Definitely a great way to get out of the house and the heat.
A perk for tired mommies (and daddies too), there is a coffee shop at the front where you can pick up a cup of joe to enjoy while browsing or for the drive home.
