Supporting The Book Nook @ Brook
Each summer Brook Avenue Elementary hosts a summer meals program and operates a lending library—The Book Nook—for children (toddlers, children, and teens) in the community.
What to donate:
- “Hardback” or “library binding” books that are in great condition (new or like new, please)
- Certain categories of books that fill gaps in the collection (or that we need to replace from time to time):
- Pop-up books! (Pop-ups was the most requested category of books last summer.)
- Books with flaps/slides/interactive or textured pages
- Age appropriate graphic novels with full color illustrations (e.g., Jake Maddox sports stories, Little Robot, Amelia Rules…Series)
- Board books for babies/toddlers (since parents visiting the feeding site check these out to read with their little ones)
- STEM fiction and non-fiction (Examples of STEM fiction titles that are on our wish list: Rosie Revere, Engineer; Iggy Peck, Architect; Ada Twist, Scientist; The Most Magnificent Thing; How Machines Work – Zoo Break!; Usborne Look Inside… Series; You Wouldn’t Want to Live Without…. Series; There’s No Place Like Space)
- Books that celebrate creativity and resilience
- Fiction books that feature persons of color as the main character(s) and non-fiction books that highlight achievements of persons of color
- Recent, very popular children’s books written in Spanish (story books that Spanish-speaking parents would read to their children) – e.g., Wonder: Todos somos unicos; Ella persistio; Rosa Pionera, Ingeniera; Barcelona Pop up; El Dia que los Crayones Regresaron a Casa
What NOT to donate:
- Material that is religious in nature.
- Material that is likely to be considered inappropriate or offensive to our users or their families.
- Reference books (dictionaries, encyclopedias, etc.)
- Activity books/coloring books are also inappropriate for our collection.
- Paperback books; the only paperback books we can utilize at this point are “chapter books” since they tend to be a bit thicker than other, more flimsy paperbacks
