SPRINGVILLE — A Book Nook was installed and dedicated at Woody Park in Springville on Saturday, February 12.
The cedar Book Nook is one of three book houses built and donated to Better Basics through a joint effort of the Trussville Daybreak Rotary Club and newly-formed Springville Rotary Club. Books are made available in the stand-alone boxes for readers to borrow at any time.
Better Basics is a nonprofit in Birmingham that strives to advance childhood literacy in reading and mathematics. A special project in Better Basics’ literacy arsenal is the installation and dedication of Book Nooks in under-resourced areas of the community. Once a Book Nook is placed in an area, Better Basics ensures a constant supply of books for birth through high-school-aged students is maintained in each Nook
The Trussville Rotary Daybreak Club meets at 7 a.m. on the first through fourth Wednesday mornings of each month at First Baptist Church Trussville (128 N.Chalkville Road).
