For Immediate Release


Hollister— Ahoy, Parents!  If you are searching for activities for you and your wee ones to do together, then join us on Wednesday, July 14 at 11 a.m. at Mars Hill Coffeehouse for a frolicking good time at our “Buccaneer Bay” story time. We’ll be singing pirate songs, telling pirate jokes, and reading books about pirates.

Everyone is welcome to dress as his or her favorite swashbuckling bandit—Black Beard, Black Bart, Captain Morgan, Captain Kidd, or even that famous movie pirate—Jack Sparrow. Or just slap on your favorite eye patch and pirate bandana, hoist the Jolly Roger,  and join in on the excitement!

Our story time will be presented by Hollister resident Julie Engelhardt. Julie has more than fifteen years’ experience offering story time presentations at schools and libraries in Southern California and at the elementary schools in the Hollister School District. Her idea is to present something different for the residents of Hollister, but she also wants to send a message to parents about the importance of reading to their children. “I love reading to children. They become so involved with the stories. I hope our first story time is a great success and that I will be able to come back many times to read other books to the children,” Engelhardt comments. “I would love to do a princess story time, a Medieval story time, one about animals, another about dinosaurs—the ideas are endless!”

This presentation is free and all family members are welcome. The program will begin promptly at 11 a.m. so make plans to arrive early for the best seats.

Mars Hill is also offering specials on coffee and non-coffee drinks during Story Time. 10% discount is available at the counter for everyone!

Mars Hill Coffeehouse is located at 610 San Benito Street in Hollister. For more information call Scott Kindred at (831) 901-0123 or Julie Engelhardt at 831-245-8462, or email

See you on the 14th, Maties!
