Since its creation, the mission of Enrichment of the book corner – a favorite and hidden UWS gem for little learners – has been to inspire a lifelong love of reading.
This year marks the Early Years Literacy Center’s tenth anniversary, and to give back to the community, they’ve partnered with Brooklyn Book Bodega to donate 10,000 books to charity!
“Brooklyn Book Bodega’s mission aligns with ours – we both believe that books should be accessible to all children,” write Book Nook founders Rina and Andy Collins.
Rina Collins opened Book Nook’s first location at 167 West 81st Street in 2012. In 2016, her husband Andy Collins joined the team as co-owner and COO, helping the business grow to open two more studios (at 557 West 59th Street and 23 Warren Street in Tribeca).
Book Nook offers a range of reading lessons for children from 6 months to 8 years old. Its curriculum has been “designed to meet the needs and learning styles of each child”, offering “bright and warm learning environments specially designed to stimulate your child’s curiosity and imagination”.
The classes are divided into six learning levels according to age groups from 6 months to 8 years. Each class incorporates reading, art and music, and your child will develop their self-confidence while discovering the magic of books.
Rina and Andy live at UWS with their three children (all BN students, of course) and are excited to give back this year!
Those who wish to contribute can donate to the three Book Nook locations: 167 West 81st Street, 557 West 59th Street and 23 Warren Street in Tribeca.
Book Nook is also offering a 10% discount on its summer tuition (until June 1) – and those who donate will be entered into a raffle to win a variety of prizes and giveaways throughout the year!
