The Archway Partnership has recently launched its newest initiative: Book Nooks! As the result of dedicated volunteers working through Readers to Leaders and First Five, a birth-to-Pre-K work group, bookshelves containing child-appropriate books, or “book nooks”, will make their way to local businesses and waiting areas in the community. Dalton State College’s Athletics program has agreed to sponsor the first four Book Nooks and placed the first one at White’s Pediatrics on December 3. Children were excited to see the Book Nook, and their reaction immediately upon its installation can be viewed below.
None of these efforts and community successes would be possible without the collaboration of different individuals and organizations coming together. Pictured below is a snapshot of the first Book Nook and a few of the individuals and organizations that helped make it possible.
