Our Values

The Story House values diversity, excellence, community and partnership.

Diversity: The Story House celebrates Montgomery County’s ethnic, racial, religious and gender diversity in its inventory. The Story House believes in the power of the written word to promote understanding and break down barriers.

Excellence: The Story House seeks to sell the best of children’s and young adult literature, whether from best-selling authors or emerging and local writers, and to sponsor high quality literary events.

Community: The Story House believes that independent bookstores can be a cornerstone in a community, reflecting the community’s values, history and make-up.


Partnership: The Story house seeks to partner with community groups to bring the independent bookstore experience to young people and their families. 

The Story House is an independent, bookstore for children and young adults.  We are located within Dawson's Market in Rockville Town Center and in our renovated trolley bus.  The Story House trolley travels throughout the DC area, partnering with schools, faith groups and organizations on book fairs and other customized book events.

We are affiliated with Bookshop.org.  If you can not find what you are looking for on our site, please visit Bookshop.org for a larger selection including books for adults.
