NEW COMMUNITY LIBRARY: The Book Nook

    509

    BOOK lovers now have their own special place where they can discover, read, and share stories at SM Aura Premier.

    The Book Nook is a free library, built with the intention of creating a community that believes in the value of sharing and the love of reading. It is in partnership with WTA Architecture & Design Studio, National Bookstore, Anvil Publishing, UV Care, and Samsung together with SM Cares and The SM Store.

    Visitors at the Book Nook can simply select a book from a library which can hold more than 1,000 written treasures. Should the reader fall greatly in love with a book, there is no need to part with it as a number of books are free to take home. All that is asked in return is that the reader pays it forward by donating a book from their own collection.

    Readers can also share their favorite stories with someone else by leaving a note in their pre-loved treasure.

    SM Aura Premier will also be hosting activities such as story-telling sessions, book launches, and meet & greet sessions with authors that will be presented both online and off.

    Concerns over safety in the current situation will be addressed through contact-less systems like contact tracing via the SM Supermalls QR code-based system, Trace Together, and with a QR code-based registration system for logging books that are donated and taken from the library. A UV light box, care of helps ensure that all books borrowed and donated are safe to be handled by the next book lover.

    The Book Nook is located at the 4th level of SM Aura Premier.
