“The Book Nook at APM Luzerne’s site getting good use during its weekly summer reading program.”

Reading can happen anywhere, that’s why we’re spotlighting businesses who host Book Nooks throughout Philadelphia. Help our city’s children read at grade level by greeting families with a place to read and shelves full of popular children’s books. Turn wait time into time spent reading together.

Eligible businesses include: barbershops, laundromats, nail salons and more.

Thanks to hundreds of volunteers on Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service, we’ve already put together and distributed 250 Book Nooks across the city.
