Summer Concert Series
Thursdays at 11am, IN-STORE


Music has always been a part of Linden Tree’s DNA, dating back to our earliest days specializing in children’s music. And while the pandemic forced us to hit the pause button, we’re thrilled to bring back our summer concerts for kids every Thursday at 11am, starting on June 9! Here's the lineup:


June 9: Wiley Rankin and Jump for Joy Music
June 16: Marshall Magoon Magic
June 23: Karla Kane and the Corner Laughers
June 30: Andy Z (starts at 10:45am!)
July 7: Mary Lee Sunseri
July 14: Charity Kahn
July 21: House of Samba Kids
July 28: Lori and RJ
August 4: John Sugden


All concerts will take place outdoors, in front of the store. And while admission is free, we strongly encourage attendees to purchase and donate a book to our friends at Reading Partners, a nonprofit that works with Title I elementary schools to support students who are reading below grade level.





Find Waldo Party and Prize Drawing
Sunday, July 31 at 4pm, IN-STORE


Celebrate the end of our month-long hunt for Waldo at downtown Los Altos businesses with a party! We'll have food, games, and even a chance to take a photo with the elusive man himself! We'll also hold the prize drawing for everyone who submitted a completed Find Waldo passport during the month of July. (You don't need to be present to win... but it'll be more fun if you are!) 




Outdoor Storytimes: Sundays at 10:30am


In-person storytime is back! Join us every Sunday morning at 10:30am in front of the store as Mary Sheila shares some of our favorite read-alouds. (Grab a tasty pastry from our neighbors at Manresa while your kids enjoy the stories!) All storytimes feature picture books and are appropriate for all ages.
