Book Fair

The annual book fair promotes early literacy among local community children and exposes them to the possibility of health science careers.  Organized and coordinated by the Program Director, Librarian and student nurse volunteers, the book booth is held in conjunction with the annual Health and Wellness Fair, which takes place in October of each year.  The book booth provides a large selection of used and new books for giveaways to local community children.  Story times for children’s health-related books are provided by community leaders as well as student nurses, to encourage literacy and interest in the health sciences.
