Spread the joy of reading with the Peace Center’s Book Nook

Celebrate the holiday season by donating a new or gently used children’s book to the Peace Center’s new Book Nook. The program is part of a community-wide Season of Giving book drive to benefit classrooms at Thomas E. Kerns Elementary and Armstrong Elementary Schools.

Books can be dropped off at the Book Nook now through Dec. 16 in the Peace Concert Hall lobby, which is open 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. Monday-Saturday and 90 minutes before performances. Those donating will have the opportunity to inscribe a special book plate that will be placed in the book. In mid-December, the books will go directly into the elementary school classrooms.

Books should be new or lightly loved, and targeted to elementary and beginner reading levels, including picture books and short chapter books. Books in Spanish are also needed. Choose a favorite book or one from the Greenville County Schools recommended reading list or the Association for Library Services to Children list. Both of those lists are available at
