Book Nook

United Way of Aroostook received a very large donation of books from The Cubby Thrift Stores, LLC right about the time they were trying to come up with a new way to help fund our early literacy program.  After some creative thinking and wonderful suggestions, the Book Nook happened!

The Book Nook is a used book space located in the Aroostook Centre Mall. It has hundreds of books of all kinds for all kinds of readers, both young and old and in between! All books are available by donation.  All proceeds go directly to helping fund Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library which reaches nearly 2,300 Aroostook County preschoolers each month, sending a high-quality, age-appropriate book to their homes.

We have been happy to share our books with many groups and events from the Aroostook CA$H Coalition and SAD#! Adult and Community Education to Little Feathers Headstart and the Aroostook Centre Mall Bounce House!

The Book Nook also gratefully accepts donations of books to help re-stock the bookshelves.

The Book Nook is proud to work with monthly “BOOK END” sponsors who set up an advertising display in the window of the Book Nook for a donation of $250.

If you have questions about the Book Nook, making a book donation, or becoming a Book End sponsor, please contact our office at 764-5197 or email athena@unitedwayaroostook.org
