Homework Club, Afterlight Book Club, Parents and Tots Meetup and Updated Store Hours on the Intergalactic Travel Authority Website

There’s a lot going on here at Story Planet this week! Our Homework Club is back on, our Afterlight Book Club is meeting up and our Parents and Tots Meetup event is becoming a regular thing. On top of all that, in the very near future, we’ll be announcing lots of upcoming events and workshops, so stay tuned for more details!

If you’re interested in joining in on the fun, we’re always looking for volunteer crew members and we have some great new programs coming up soon. Follow this link to find out how you can take part and how to get involved!

Homework Club is back on!

HWClub02.10.14_0137

Homework Club, the free homework help workshop we host after school on Tuesdays for kids between the ages of 6 and 12 is officially back on after pausing for the holidays. To those of you who signed up your kids in September, we’ll see you after school!

Afterlight Book Club

Our Afterlight Book Club is a monthly Meetup event that we host on the first Tuesday of every month. Anyone who enjoys reading and discussing novels in a fun and relaxed atmosphere is welcome to come. We provide the snacks and discussion questions. All we ask is that you contribute to the Meetup costs on a “pay what you can” basis. Any other proceeds from the events go to funding other Story Planet programming like the Alpha Workshop for kids.

This Tuesday at 7:30, if you have time to read the book in time, we’ll be discussing Adult Onset by Ann-Marie MacDonald: a powerful drama about family, motherhood and love.

If you can’t make it to this Tuesday’s event, next month (February 10), we’ll be discussing Sean Michaels’ Scotiabank Giller Prize-winning novel, Us Conductors. Click here to find more information and to RSVP to Afterlight Book Club events. Happy reading!

Parents and Tots Meetup event

As we mentioned in last week’s blog post, our Parents and Tots Meetup event is a comfortable and fun opportunity for parents of babies and toddlers to get out of the cold, grab a coffee and snack at the Intergalactic Travel Authority (our kid-friendly coffee shop), meet new people, hear from interesting speakers and hang out. We provide creative activities and fun toys for the kids. All we ask is that you contribute to the Meetup costs on a “pay what you can” basis. Other proceeds from the events go to funding other Story Planet programming for underserved kids living in Toronto.

Updated store hours on the Intergallactic Travel Authority website

We’ve updated the store hours on the Intergalactic Travel Authority website. Learn more about what we do, check out when we’re open and come by for a coffee!

All of the proceeds from the coffee and Earth souvenirs sold at the store go directly to Story Planet, which helps provide free programming to kids in Toronto, so naturally, our coffee is the best in the galaxy!
