Alexandra’s Picks

As thanks to Twice Upon a Time’s founder and first President, we are delighted to announce the “Alexandra’s Picks” fund. Donations made to this fund will be used to purchase new books for Ottawa kids, as selected by Alexandra Yarrow.

Each year, Alexandra will curate a list of new favourites for us to purchase and distribute in our pop-up shops and other events and through our community partners. Thank you, Alexandra, for everything you’ve done for local families and for your dream of a free books for children service for Ottawa!

Alexandra has already sent us her first list of titles that she hopes Ottawa families will love and cherish.
