Sharing the Joy of Books and Reading
Titan Bookmobile Makes Generous Donation
We had a wonderful visit from the Titan Bookmobile on Friday. Through a partnership with the Nashua Transit System, Nashua Education Foundation and the American Federation of Teachers, volunteers from the Bookmobile stopped at the Nashua YMCA to donate many cases of books to our After School Program library.
In front of the Bookmobile (from left to right) are Brandi MacDonald, Stephanie Doucette, Tina Eaton, and Melissa Bartolomei.
The Bookmobile volunteers are all teachers and members of the Literacy Committee at Nashua North High School. Their committee has two goals: to promote a culture of literacy and improve students’ literacy skills within the high school and to promote a culture of literacy and love of reading in the greater Nashua community.
Prior to the pandemic, the Literacy Committee previously hosted a Family Literacy Day at Nashua North; however, when this type of large-scale event wasn’t possible last year, they began using the Bookmobile. “We discovered that we liked the Bookmobile better as we were able to get books and other literacy materials into the hands of more children than if we did a weekend event at the school. We hope to continue the Bookmobile in years to come,” Melissa Bartolomei said.
Y staff ready to unpack the book donations are (left to right) Amy Millard, Mya Webster, John Tanner who work in the after school program at the Nashua YMCA.
