Family HealthCare Network (FHCN) scheduled a late October opening for The Book Nook, a local bookstore inspired by FHCN's goal of improving the quality of life and overall health of its local community by promoting literacy.
"The Book Nook is committed to providing a space that encourages children and families of Visalia and surrounding communities to develop and nourish their love of books and learning," said Kerry Hydash, FHCN president and CEO. "Our vision is a community where access to reading and learning is fundamental in the lives of all children and families, laying the foundation for a healthy and productive society. "
The Book Nook will offer a wide selection of genres for community members, including large print books, how-to and do-it-yourself, home and garden, performing arts, nature, philosophy, self-care, body/mind/spirit, travel, audio books, and a children's area called Bug's Books.
Other items available for purchase will include stationery, greeting cards, journals, bookmarks and book lights, pens, etc.
The Book Nook will be part of a Reading Rx program where FHCN patients can receive a prescription about what to read from their provider, and pick up their age-appropriate book at the store.
The bookstore will host events such as author's talks and other presentations.
The Book Nook was set to open at the end of October at 114 N. Main St. in downtown Visalia. Hours will be 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday.
