Literacy, Lions build book nooks

WHEATLAND — The Platte County Early Literacy Project, in partnership with the Lions Club, has installed two new borrowing book nooks in Wheatland. They are located by the Platte County Parks and Recreation building next to the swimming pool, and in front of Wheatland City Hall on Ninth Street.
The purpose of the book nook is to have books available to borrow at any time. Borrowers must replace the book they borrow with another book, so books will always be available at the nooks and the selection will rotate. Each nook will contain adult as well as children’s books.
The Platte County Early Literacy Project’s intent is to make books available at all times for citizens of Platte County, as well as to promote the love of reading to all.
Lions Club member Woody Shore built the book nooks for the community free of charge. The Platte County Early Literacy Project expressed gratitude for Shore’s time and generosity, and encourages all borrowers to always leave a book at the nook.
