SG_header_picThe Story Garden is the non-profit branch of Baby Bookworms & Beyond that provides reading & literacy programs for children of all ages and their families in our Mississauga community. We are run by a team of volunteers and Bentall Kennedy has generously provided us with space in the Sheridan Centre (located right beside the food court).

We are always looking for partners to help fund our programs and volunteers to help run them. Please drop by and say hello or join us for one of our weekly events. This short video also provides more information. All are welcome… see you in the Garden!
