Reading Nooks

The Bulloch County Literacy Council encourages reading nooks in your home and in local businesses to boost access to books for children and to help improve preschool and early-elementary literacy and Kindergarten readiness in Bulloch County.

Bulloch Solutions and Franklin Chevrolet-Buick-GMC, two of the Literacy Council's Bulloch READ program sponsors, were the first business to establish reading nooks for children in their locations. There are now nearly 30 reading nooks in businesses in Bulloch County.  See the current list below.

Reading nooks are a great way to give children easier access to books, encourage reading, and create a literacy-rich environment for children in our community. The cozy corners offer a place for kids to look at or read books, and families may take a book home from local business' reading nooks to help build their own home libraries and nooks.

The Literacy Council is available to guide businesses in how to establish a reading nook. Contact Crystal Simpkins, director of early learning and literacy at Bulloch County Schools, at  912.212.8892 or by email.
