Reading for All is partnering with local businesses and organizations to give them an opportunity to be involved with our literacy efforts to support daily reading and family literacy. The Community Book Nook project provides, at no cost, a business or agency with a small bookcase, a box of books to be displayed on the bookcase, and a variety of posters and materials. Reading for All asks that the "Book Nook" be placed in an open area, such as a waiting room or lobby, or any location where families gather. Children and families are encouraged to read while they wait and also pick out a book to take home for free. This project involves the community and reaches out to kids & families.
If your organization is interested in learning more about this project or having a Book Nook at your location, please contact Michelle Bornfleth by email or at (503) 623-9664, ext. 2457.
