After 43 years in business, including 32 in Roland Park and nearly three in Hamilton-Lauraville, The Children’s Bookstore is closing its doors.

Owner Melissa Doty has set July 25 as the final day of operation for the independent bookstore at 4717 Harford Road, part of the SoHa Row commercial district.

It will be the final chapter for one of the oldest continuously-operating children’s bookstores in America. It was also one of the original tenants of James Rouse’s Harborplace development, back when the twin pavilions featured local merchants rather than chain stores.

Considering A School for Your Child? Tuesday Talks With The Principal Tomorrow at SFA

From the SFA website:

Mission

For more than half a century~
~Drawing on the ideals of St. Francis of Assisi, 
~Rooted in the neighborhoods of Northeast Baltimore, 
~Envisioning a future even stronger than our past, 
St. Francis of Assisi School forms children for a life of scholarship, spirituality, and service.

History

      Since 1955, the St. Francis of Assisi School has been successfully providing early childhood and elementary school education to students in Northeast Baltimore and outlying communities. Serving children ranging from Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 8, the school has a history of preparing children to attend the private and public high school of their choice.
The school is a vital part of the St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church community, and it has a proud history of offering a sound and inclusive environment to children of all races, regardless of religious affiliation and family structure.
St. Francis of Assisi School proudly embraces the values of its patron saint, St. Francis of Assisi. One of the Catholic Church’s best known saints, St. Francis promoted the virtues of a selfless life dedicated to serving the world around him. His respect of living creatures and the environment may be history’s most notable interpretation of St. Francis of Assisi’s life.
The school community believes that St. Francis’s values are relevant to children of all religions, and works hard to instill them in the students. While graduating solid students ready for high school, St. Francis of Assisi School also works diligently to form children of good character who leave the community as young adults aware and respectful of the world around them.
