I am so sad to announce that Aladdin’s Lamp Bookstore for children will close its doors at the end of June 2010.
This wonderful community jewel has served the families of Arlington, VA for 20 years.
Through the end of May, the bookstore will continue carrying new books, replacing popular titles, and fulfilling special orders.
Story hours will continue at 11am on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
Going out of business sales have begun with discounts of 20-40% on selected sections and books.
For more information about the bookstore, call 703-241-8281 or write email@example.com.

My final “Sing Books with Emily” at Aladdin’s Lamp Bookstore will take place this Saturday, May 15 at 11am.
I hope you will join me in singing some wonderful books and bidding a fond adieu to this Arlington Treasure.
My heartfelt gratitude goes to the bookstore’s owner Alina for giving me the special chance to Sing Books to so many wonderful children and their families over the past year.
