LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The kids of Metro Louisville are about to get a whole bookstore all to themselves.


According to a news release, Carmichael's Bookstore plans to open a new store exclusively for children sometime in early August.


The store will be called Carmichael's Kids, and it will be located at 1313 Bardstown Road, next to Discoveries and The Bristol Bar and Grille.


"We wanted to open a store devoted to children's books for some time now, but the right opportunity hadn't come along," said Kelly Estep, the employee expected to manage the store, according to the news release. "With a space becoming available virtually next door to our Bardstown Road store, we knew it was time to make this idea a reality."


The bookstore will also carry a selection of toys, games and gifts. It will host special events for children, as well as story times and author events, the release states.
